As my art teacher used to say, Max you’re too earnest. Or was it serious. Ernst was a serious artist. He left his wife and son and moved to Paris where he settled into  ménage à trois with the Éluards. I don’t know who the Eluards were but I’m sure they were wonderful people. The war started. When Ernst  wasn’t being chased around by the gestapo he did a lot of work. They chased him to America. The woman he left behind, Leonara Carrington, had a nervous break down. The woman who took him to America, Peggy Guggenheim, married him. But the marriage didn’t last long. He divorced Peggy and married Dorothea Tanning. He started to have success as an artist and stopped getting married.
