Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was a Spanish painter and sculptor born in Figueres, Spain. Dali’s eccentric nature made him the most prominent representative of the surrealist movement and one of the most widely recognized artists in the world. Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealistic work.
Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture and photography, in collaboration with a wide range of artists in a variety of media. The body of Dali’s work, from early impressionist paintings through his transitional surrealist works, and into Dali’s classical period, reveals a constantly growing and evolving artist.
