A Biography of Salvador Dali Salvador Dali was a famous Spanish painter, who worked mainly in the surrealistic genre. Eccentric art preferences reflected in the author’s everyday life. Dali is often recognized by The Persistence of Memory, a painting with melted clocks, created in 1931. But his exposure to art started much earlier. Dali was born on May 11, 1904 in Figueres, a town located in Spanish region Catalonia.
` Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a revolutionary artist that is known for his symbolic, dream-like artwork. Dali has artwork, like The Basket of Bread (1945) that doesn’t scream surrealism but is just as symbolic as his other works of art. In 1945 Dali, a 41 year old living in the United States during World War 2, had already been kicked out of the Surrealists and had published his autobiography The Secret Life of Salvador Dali in 1942. His expulsion from the Surrealist movement by Breton came after he displayed sexual fetishes in his art, he showed support to Franco and after Dali’s art piece The Enigma of Hitler 1939 (Editors, 2017). After moving to the United States, his art still possessed surrealist elements but Dali also experimented with more classic values, traditional techniques, science, and the catholic religion resulting in his Nuclear Period (Leal, 2017).

In the museum of Salvador Dali over at St. Petersburg, Florida, there were several artworks that caught my attention because Dali’s artwork is genuine in many ways. Although I was impressed by all the artworks, there was a particular one that interested me completely. The artwork is the painting titled “Old age, Adolescence, Infancy (The Three Ages)”. This is a 1940, oil on canvas painting with dimensions 19 5/8 in x 25 5/8 in. The subject matter in this work is the three phases of life.

He was a creative mastermind, a dominant technician, and a visionary who kept shocking the world with his marvelous artwork. He was also born with an improbable outlook on artistic creations and an amazing ability to create outstanding portraits. Salvador Dali was a prominent artist during the early 1900s.

An artist who constructed ‘mental windows’ into dreamlike alter realities implementing the methods of old masters while translating theories cohesive with French philosopher Henri Bergson on canvas. Dali has largely been considered a complex and intellectual individual, with extreme views and an eccentric personality. Many scholars have examined his work considering concepts surrounding theories of perception, psychology and language. O.B.
Dali was around 66 years old by the time he produced this massive canvas of 157 by 118 inches, it was one of the last large scale works he would ever complete. Dali abandoned monumental works because he was devoting his time and energy to building his grand museum and mausoleum in Figueres, Spain, his Catalan hometown.

More recent archeological work has now challenged almost every concept of the previous ecocide idea. New studies have shown that the massive stone statues didn’t need logs to move around the island. Instead, researchers found that they could actually walk. Specially built roads were constructed for the statues and with a set of teams and ropes, the statues could be walked along the path the same way that a modern refrigerator can be walked across a kitchen. By shifting the weight of the structure back and forth along pivot points, the heavy stones could be walked to their destination.
