Salvador Dalí is one of the greatest representatives of surrealism. In 1921 he
enrolled in the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid, where he
became a friend of Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel. Shortly after he visited Paris where he met Picasso, Tristan Tzara and Paul Éluard. About this time Dalí produced and illustrated his first surrealist publications. Toward the end of the decade he made several trips to Italy to study the art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In 1940 Dalí fled to the United States, where he worked on theatrical productions, wrote, illustrated books, and painted. “Surrealism is me...” Salvador Dalí was perhaps the most popular surrealist and one of the world’s greatest exponents of contemporary art. His legacy does not go unnoticed and is characterized by the technical perfection and imaginative content of his art.
