comment The extent of obscure references
I wasn't being hostile; I was being factual. Dali is extremely well-known. He pretty much defines surrealism to the point where most people couldn't name a second artist in the style. My point is that you should check with other people to see if what you think is obscure is also obscure to others.

@Spartan I have added your context quote to your original post, because it clarifies your question.

Excellent advice. This way you make your own observations and find your own words rather than relying on anyone else's.

comment Examples in APA format
Hi, and welcome to Writers. We generally like one question per post, as it makes it easier to answer each one. Stack Exchange has an Accept mechanism, and if someone answers Q2 correctly but not Q1 or Q3, you can't accept more than one "right" answer. Could you split this into three separate questions? (or at least Q1/Q2 as one, since they're closely related, and Q3 as a second question)

Dali is not a "tier-2" artist. You may need to check your own level of understanding references before assuming that of your readership.

Although not for anything, I think a short story written in russyan accent like Chekov on great wodka bender vith Sulu could be very entertaining. :)

Write the plot first; add the descriptions in the next draft where the setting requires it.
