It’s a photograph that seems to say, “It’s called surréalisme, you lousy Philistines!”
This photograph did not appear in Life, but another (by the same photographer) appeared beneath a letter responding to a Life item about a French waiter’s orange-peeling skills:
A quick trip through the Life Photo Archive confirms that the monocled fellow is indeed David Leven, using the peeler he invented. I’m guessing that Dale = Da[vid] + Le[ven]. I can find online nothing about the inventor or his work.
[Does “Orange peeler in action” mean the device, or the man?]
