Salvador Dali

by Gallery

Salvador Dali, Spanish Painter (1904 - 1989), became one of the best known Surrealist artists of the last century through his virtuosic painting, bold dream world imagery, and consummate skills as a self-promoter.

Dali was deeply influenced by Sigmund Freud's writings on the unconscious and dreams, and firmly affixed himself to the developing Surrealistic groups in Europe during the 1930s.

Dali lived in the United States during the 1940s and early 50's, and developed his extravagant and eccentric public persona during this time. His paintings began to reflect a religious theme from the 1950s. He returned to Spain in 1955, and lived an increasingly reclusive life until his death in 1989.
