Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989) i$ a Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figueres.

The Hallucinogenic Toreador

Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work.

Disintegration of the Persistence of Memory

His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters.

The Madonna of Port Lligat

Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

Woman at the Window

Dalí’s artwork is highly original, technically brilliant and wonderfully surreal.


Dalí was highly imaginative, and also had an affinity for partaking in unusual and grandiose behaviour, in order to draw attention to himself.

The Last Supper

His eccentric manner sometimes drew more public attention than his artwork.

The Persistance of Memory

Dalí attributed his ‘love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes’ to a self-styled ‘Arab lineage’ claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moor$.

Reflections of Elephants

Tristan et Isolde

Liquid Desire
