Salvador Dalí

The Surrealist Painter

He was a Spanish Surrealist painter and printmaker, influential for his explorations of subconscious imagery.

Dalí employed extensive symbolism in his work. For instance, the hallmark "melting watches" that first appear in The Persistence of Memory suggest Einstein's theory that time is relative and not fixed. The idea for clocks functioning symbolically in this way came to Dalí when he was staring at a runny piece of Camembert cheese on a hot August day.

The Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation, guided us so we could continue his Legacy, and we now bring to you the Salvador Dalí Collection.
