SALVADOR DALI Biography, History and Paintings
SALVADOR DALI
(1904-89) A finger in every artistic pie, the Spaniard was a painter, sculptor, graphic artist and designer.

He found his niche in cubism, via Cubism, Futurism and Metaphysical painting.

Dali was also a brilliant self-publicist, and quickly became the most famous representative of Surrealism after moving to Paris in 1929.

The eccentric, dream-like works reflected the character of the artist perfectly.

The anagram of his name 'Avida Dollars' seemed fitting, as in the late 1930s Dali was completely preoccupied with publicity and making money.

There are two museums in the USA (Cleveland and Florida) and one in Spain (Figueras - his birthplace) completely devoted to Dali's work, though critics meet his output with mixed feelings.
