Bonti Dali....

Colour coordinated spring arrival...

Salvador DalĂ­ was a real freaky bike freak.

...had an  Bianchi in his studio and said he would have liked "the whole of France" to cycle: "The Tour de France on bicycles produces in me such a persistent satisfaction that my saliva flows in imperceptible but stubborn streams."

Willem de Kooning

 Woman and Bicycle depicts a standing woman, whose body is visible among the brushstrokes, slashes, scrapes, and smears of paint. She has elements of the stylish women that de Kooning would have seen on billboards and in magazines in the early 1950s. She is wearing a tight, low-cut outfit and high heels, fashionable at that time, but not very practical for bike riding.

seen any of these...?
