Salvador Dalí starts building his legend in Paris since his first trip there in 1926. He visited Picasso in his studio and some famous places such as the Musée du Louvre, Versailles or Millet's house and studio in Fontainebleau. In 1929 he moved to Paris to shoot Un Chien Andalou and joined the Surrealist group. This stay motivated the Documentary-Paris-1929 column, which he published in seven articles in La Publicitat. Dalí quotes famous and fashionable places such as the Claridge, the Ritz, the Carlton, the Coupole bar, and he refers to many artists: Benjamin Peret, Paul Eluard, Jean Cocteau, Man Ray, René Magritte, Joan Miró, Pablo Picasso, Camille Goemans, Robert Desnos, René Clair, etc.
