Friday links: Dali and Harpo, secret diaries, and a disappearing ermine
Some stories we’ve been reading this week:
The odd couple
A friendship as unexpected as the chance meeting on a dissecting table of a sewing machine and an umbrella: Salvador Dalí and Harpo Marx.
This is really fantastic: ancient Greek vases turned into animations.

The perfect accessory
New discoveries on a 500-year old Da Vinci painting: The Lady with an Ermine didn’t always include the ermine.
The secret diaries of American artists, not so secret anymore.
Russia before it turned red
Pre-revolutionary Russia, in color.
