Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, known as Salvador Dalí, the Marquis of Púbol (Figueras, Spain, May 11, 1904 - ibid., January 23, 1989) was a Spanish painter considered one of the leading representatives of surrealism .

Dali is known for his striking and bizarre surreal images. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence and admiration for Renaissance art. He was also a skilled draftsman. Plastic resources Dalí also discussed the film, sculpture and photography, which led him to collaborations with visual artists. He had the ability to forge an intensely personal and recognizable style, which actually was very eclectic and that "régime turned" outside innovations. One of his most famous works is The Persistence of Memory, the famous painting of "melted watches", set in 1931.

As a highly imaginative artist, showed a remarkable tendency to narcissism and megalomania, whose purpose was to attract public attention. This behavior irritated those who appreciated his art and justified his critics, who rejected his eccentric behavior as a publicity gimmick sometimes more striking than his artistic production. Dalí attributed his "love for everything that is gilded and excessive, [his] passion for luxury and his love of oriental fashion" to a self-styled "Arab lineage", which traced its roots to the time of Arab domination the Iberian Peninsula.
