Photo by Herman Landshoff – Max Ernst in New York 1942 (Guggenheim collection)
Max Ernst fled Europe helped by his marriage to Peggy Guggenheim. He left his girlfrind Leonora Carrington and she suffered a major mental breakdown.
Max had a terrific reputation for his beauty, charm, and success with women. He had white hair and big blue eyes and a handsome beak-like nose resembling a bird’s. He was exquisitely made – ( from Peggy Guggenheim’s Out of this Century).
