Our civilization is too mechanical. We can make the fantastic real, transforming it into something more real than what really exists.” But Dalí was not the only artist criticized by others in the movement for his relation with the world of commerce.

Another of the figures responsible for the ideological dissemination of the movement was British millionaire Edward James, patron of both Magritte and Dalí, who turned his home, Monkton House, into an authentic Surrealist dream and was involved in the creation of some major Surrealist legacies, including Mae West’s lips sofa, the lobster telephones and almost certainly the rose-glove tea set, all of which became part of the decor of this most unusual studio.
