Salvador Dalí (Spain, 1904-1989) was a Spanish surrealist artist renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship, and the striking and bizarre images in his work. Dalí received his formal education in fine arts in Madrid. He was influenced by Impressionism and the Renaissance masters and at a young age was drawn to Cubism and avant-garde movements.  He moved to Surrealism in the late 1920’s. Dalí’s artistic works included painting, graphic arts, film, sculpture, design and photography. His works can be found in museums around the world including MoMA, NYC; Getty Museum, Los Angeles, CA; National Gallery of Art, Washington, DC; Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia, PA; The Salvador Dali Museums: Figueres, Spain; Paris, France; St. Petersburg, FL
