"Gala” by Dominique Bona

“Who has not heard of Gala; whose name is today inseparable from that of Dalí? But how many know exactly who she was? ELENA DIAKONOVA was born in Russia in 1894. At the age of eighteen; she sick with tuberculosis; she was sent by her family to a luxurious sanatorium in switzerland. There, already making herself known as Gala, she meets the poet Paul Eluard, who is then seventeen years old. It is a love fou.”
