Dali, Salvador Biography


Was originally a Spanish Cubist, but went to Paris in 1928 and in 1929 was welcomed into the Surrealist group by Andre Breton, who, in 1938, expelled him for rejecting the Marxist connections of the movement while retaining the Freudian overtones. Dali’s is the nightmare world of man-size ants and limp pocket watches, meticulous in realistic detail, haunting in the inescapability of the horrific, and even in his later religious works - the Glasgow Crucifixion (1951) or the Last Supper in Washington - unable to avoid crude and willful sensationalism. Dali was in the US between 1940 and 1955, after which he returned to Spain as an avowed Francoist. Dali spent his last years in seclusion in his castle at Figueras, in Catalonia, which he left as a memorial to his art.
