Salvador dalí, de son nom complet salvador domingo felipe jacinto dalí i domenech, premier marquis de dalí de púbol, b. 23 January 1989, a Catalan painter, sculptor, engraver, screenwriter and writer of Spanish nationality. He is considered one of the main representatives of surrealism, and one of the most famous painters of the 20th century. Influenced very young by Impressionism, he left figueras to receive an academic artistic education in madrid where he became friends with federico garcía Lorca and luis buñuel and sought his style between different artistic movements. On the advice of joan miró, he joined the bet at the end of his studies and joined the group of surrealists, where he met his wife gala.He found his own style from 1929, when he became surrealist in his own right and invented the paranoid-critical method. Excluded from this group a few years later, he lived the war of Spain in exile in Europe, before leaving the france at war for new york, where he lived eight years and made a fortune. On his return to Catalonia in 1949, he made a turn towards Catholicism, drew closer to the painting of the renaissance and inspired scientific evolutions of his time to change his style towards what he called " corpuscular mysticism".
The most common themes he addressed were dreams, sexuality, edibles, his wife gala and religion. The persistence of memory is one of his most famous surrealist canvases, the Christ of Saint Jean de la Croix is one of his main religiously motivated canvases. A very imaginative artist, he showed a noticeable tendency to narcissism and megalomania that allowed him to hold public attention, but irritated a part of the world of art, which saw in this behavior a form of advertising that sometimes exceeded his work.Two museums were dedicated to him during his lifetime, the salvador dali museum and the theatre-museum dalí. Dalí himself created the second, as a surrealist work in its own right.
The sympathy of dalí for Franco francisco, his eccentricity and his late works make the analysis of his work as well as his person difficult themes and subject to controversy.
