Salvador Dali

May 11, 1904 (Figueres, Spain) – January 23, 1989 (Figueres, Spain).

Salvador Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marquis de Dalí de Púbol was a prominente Spanish surrealist. He was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

Here, his well-studied pose as a dilettantic, provocative and seductive artist, was captured.

Works: The Persistence of Memory, Galatea of the Spheres, The Burning Giraffe.

Periods: Cubism, Dadaism, Surrealism.
