11.5.1904: Salvador Dalí (†23.1.1989)
Spanish painter, sculptor, and graphic artist. Dalí is one of the main representatives of surrealism and also became famous as an eccentric exhibitionist. His irrational, dreamlike images were influenced by Freud’s psychoanalysis. From 1929, living with his Muse Gala in Paris, he created “Persistence of memory” (1931), a picture of melting clocks. Dali’s pictures frequently deal with death, destruction, sexuality and religion. In the late 1940s, while living in the United States, Dali broke with surrealism. He also produced numerous graphic drawings and stage sets. He shot "an Andulusian dog" (1928) and "L'Age d'or" (1930). He developed the famous dream sequence for Hitchcock’s "Spellbound" (1945).
