Here are some paintings by Salvador Dalí – an artist whose work I admire very much.
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989) was a Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figueres.
Dalí 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.
His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931.
Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.
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 Moors.
Dalí was highly imaginative, and also had an affinity for partaking in unusual and grandiose behaviour, in order to draw attention to himself.
His eccentric manner sometimes drew more public attention than his artwork.
Dalí’s artwork is highly original, technically brilliant and wonderfully surreal.
If you enjoy Dalí’s art as much as I do…
