Barbara Warner Howard: Mother loved that portrait so much that she wanted him to do one of my father. Of course my father was very impatient and I doubt if he sat for it much. He sent photographs for Dalí to work from. At the time we had a giant schnauzer named Dragon, and the dog came out more lifelike in the portrait than my father. ~Google Books
