Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was one of the most famous Surrealist artists of the 20th century.

Dali learned the fundamentals of drawing in school however it was his interest in the writings of Sigmund Freud on the erotic significance and subconscious imagery and his affiliation with the Paris Surrealists which had a tremendous influence on his art.

His paintings are almost dreamlike as he takes common objects and almost melts and deforms them on the canvas in strange ways. His most famous painting is Persistence of Memory (1931) in which melting watches lay on an eerie landscape.

Not only was Dali a painter but he also designed stage sets, jewelry, illustrated books, made films and wrote the book, The Secret Life of Salvador Dali (1942).
