my1930s:

Salvador Dali in a bathtub
June 19, 1944: Surrealist Salvador Dali poses in his small temporary workplace, a bathtub in the Ambassador Hotel. The Times wrote in a front-page story:

He likes to work in small, cramped places.
“Protection,” he says, fondly patting a close wall.
Yesterday it was the bathtub.
But don’t get the idea that the fellow is washed up.

The artist was in California during preparation for a production of the ballet “Mad Tristan,” for which he was designing the set and costumes. The ballet premiered in New York later that year.
