Salvador DALI

Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a Spanish artist born in Figueres, Catalonia. He studied at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid.

Painter, sculptor, writer and experimental film-maker, Dali is considered one of the greatest Surrealist artist, using bizarre dream imagery to depict bleak yet strangely sunlit dream worlds with meticulously painted common objects manipulated and morphed into bizarre creations, resonating with his rich imagination and perpetual interest in Freud’s theory of unconsciousness. His most famous work is probably his 1931 painting The Persistence Of Memory – now part of the Museum of Modern Art in New York collection - showing melting clocks in a landscape setting.

Several museums are devoted entirely to his works, including the Dali Theatre and Museum, in Figueres, Spain, the Salvador Dali House Museum, in Cadaques, Spain, and the Salvador Dali Museum in Florida. He is represented in some of the most prestigious institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, the Reina Sofia National Museum in Madrid, and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, among others.
