Salvador Dalí


Salvador Dalí was born in Spain in 1904. He began painting as a child and, by the age of 25, he was already a well-known artist. His most famous works are his surrealist paintings. The most recognizable of these is La persistencia de la memoria. Surrealist artists often depict common or easily recognizable objects in strange or unusual settings. Sometimes they change the way these objects look, giving them a dream-like or unreal appearance. Many of Dalí’s paintings ask the viewer to question the difference between reality and dreams.
