is probably best known for the Electro Sexual Sewing Machine
He was a surrealist
(Fr) and a forger
When a fight broke out between Oscar Dominguez and Esteban Frances, it was Victor Brauner who stepped in to separate them, Dominguez accidentally struck him in the face with a bottle. The injury cost Brauner his left eye
, an event that Brauner had forseen.
Dominguez updated the technique known as Decalmania
His last lover was the heiress Marie-Laure de Noailles
and during this time he replaced some of her Picasso´s with forgeries painted by himself, selling the originals.
He is also suspected of forging Klee, Ledger and Laurens.
He slit his wrists one New years Eve and Janet Flanner churlishly conjectured
that he “lay down on the floor, being a dirty, untidy man…and bled all over everything”.
