Who was the woman, about whom Dali wrote: "I love her more than my father, more than my mother, more than Picasso. And even more than money." A loner, closed up in her treasured inner world, which she fiercely defended, born as Elena Dmitrievna Dyakonova, wrapped in legends, an adventuress, a temptress, a fateful woman of insatiable appetites, greedy, unscrupulous, nymphomaniac, cynical.... But capable of fascinating three great artists: a muse, a mother and a lover for Paul Eluard, Max Ernst and Salvador Dali, they drank powerful vitality from her, without which they would probably not have risen to the dizzying summits of art. Dominique Bona, a French, bearer of the Grand Prix of the French Academy of Biography, does not idealize her heroine, "the most antipathetic among women", in the words of Peggy Guggenheim. Through her personality she looks for another view of surrealism: Gala was the mirror, reflected in which were the strong and weak aspects, the oddities and the complex sensitivity of some of the most remarkable poets and artists of the 20th century.
