Salvador Dali to be Exhumed in Spain for Paternity Test

In a surreal turn, a judge in Madrid ordered that Salvador Dalí's body — interred for nearly three decades — be exhumed after a 61-year-old Spanish woman claimed the renowned painter was her father.

María Pilar Abel Martínez, born in 1956 in Girona, said her mother, Antonia, had a secret affair with the mustachioed surrealist while working as a maid for a neighboring family on Spain's northeast coast, reports the BBC.

Abel said her mother told her several times that Dalí was her father.

On Monday the judge ruled said that because no biological remains or personal objects are around to determine paternity, DNA tests on Dalí's bones are necessary to settle the paternity suit.


Salvador Dali is one of my all time favorite artists, and one of the few truly original artists to have lived in the past 100 years.

Maria Pilar Abel Martinez is a Spanish fortune teller who works as a tarot reader for a living. Interestingly enough, this isn't the first time she's had a paternity test done to match her DNA to Dali's, and this is where the conspiracy angle comes in:


NPR's Lauren Frayer reports from Madrid, that Abel is "working as a tarot card reader — and claims to resemble Dalí: 'The only thing missing is the moustache,' she says."

El Mundo reports that Abel already underwent DNA tests in 2007 and 2008, using retained specimens from Dalí's body, but she said she was never given the results. This, Abel said, showed that the results must have been positive.


This lack of transparency in her DNA tests is what ultimate led the court to rule on the exhumation of Dali's body, citing that there is no other alternative to be used for the paternity test.

In all seriousness, who here has ever heard of submitting to a paternity test only to have the results withheld from the party who sought the test in the first place? Is it possible that the person or persons legally appointed to maintain Dali's estate were worried that they may lose their livelihood to 61 year old fortune teller?

if dali died " in-testate " - ie with no will - then this woman has a claim to the estatete [ or a portion of it ]

if there is a will - then her only benefit of demonstrating her lineage from dali = the media circus she can generate as " dalis daughter "

I bet if they dig it open, there is no skeleton, it has been stolen.

The wife Gala was the Russian teacher/ slave liberator of the day.
Unless they bring her Russian heritage into it and prove she somehow postumously hacked the Trump/Clinton election, the public will forget this story in 72 hours..

While there may be a CT slant, kinda doubting it however. Still doubting her claim is real as well but if it is hope she finds closure and not greed. Felt sad about this when I initially read it. RIP

Read an article on this yesterday. It said that secondary DNA was used from some sort of feeding tube and the results were inconclusive. It also said if found she is his daughter she could sue the state for rights to the 350 million dollar estate.
I think Dali is my dad too.

Ever been to the Dali museum in Florida? It's awesome man. Ben there a dozen times I bet

I agree about Dali's greatness, btw. Few realize that he was a master of every style. He just did surrealism because he was bored with all the rest.

To see a variety of his work and styles up close is mind-blowing and makes one realize he stood equally with even the greatest Masters of the Renaissance.

I live about 20 minutes from the Dali museum in downtown St. Pete, FL. It's the largest collection of Dali art outside of Spain, including his well known The Persistence of Memory.

Yup. I lived on 50th ave for years. Used to go down by the pier and hang out. Got the Dali museum in Florida. Saw a lot of # at the bayfront center.
Been a long time since I've been there. Back when central ave and 4th street was #. Last time I was there it was popping with sushi joints. Was strange

Geez I would have thought between that mustache and
crazy hair there should be plenty of DNA without needing
to remove his body ?

unless the hair sample contains a folicle [ the bit thsats subcutaneous and the hair grows from ] - then hair is a very VERY poor source of DNA - its mainly keratin [ a protien ] - and dead

In the original Dali work before the digital version of Johns fish there was mention of "wax" potentially a remnant that had been used to seal cheese.
There was also a reference to the Plato cave allegory in the same painting.
The Illuminati certainly made Salvadore Dali a household name.

The painting you are referring to is called The Persistence of Memory.

And where in the painting did Dali reference Plato's Allegory of the Cave?
