Collection: Salvador Dalí

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1 Marquis of Dalí of Púbol (Figueras, May 11, 1904-Figueras, January 23, 1989) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, engraver, set designer and writer of the 20th century. He is considered one of the greatest representatives of surrealism.

Salvador Dalí is known for his striking and dreamlike surreal images. His painting skills are often attributed to the influence and admiration of Renaissance art. He was also an expert draftsman. Dalí's plastic resources also addressed cinema, sculpture and photography, which led him to numerous collaborations with other audiovisual artists. He had the ability to hone a genuinely personal and palpable style at first contact, which was actually very eclectic and “drawn” from other people's innovations. One of his most famous paintings is The Persistence of Memory (also known as The Soft Clocks), made in 1931.
