    I have seen the finished painting of Laurence Olivier as Richard 111 which was painted by Dali. I read a book on Olivier and there was a picture of the painting featured in the book. I think it is a very good likeness of Olivier as Richard 111. With two views of Olivier’s face. I think Dali really caught the character as played by Laurence Olivier his eyes that looked so evil and unfeeling as they did in the film which Olivier brought to life through his remarkable characterization. I did not really like some of Dali’s paintings but this particular one I really do.
