Salvador Dalí Museo
Updated: Feb 2
Dalí was renowned for his flamboyant personality as much as for his undeniable technical virtuosity. In his early use of organic morphology, his work bears the stamp of fellow Spaniards Pablo Picasso and Joan Miró.
His paintings also evince a fascination for Classical and Renaissance art, clearly visible through his hyper-realistic style and religious symbolism of his later work.
Dalí is most often associated with the Surrealist movement, despite his formal expulsion from the group in 1934 for his reactionary political views.
