A bit about Salvador Dali ...

Salvador Felip Jacint Dal Domnech (May 11, 1904 January 23, 1989) was an important Catalan Spanish painter, best known for his surrealist works. (His name is also sometimes given as Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dal Domnech, the Spanish rather than Catalan form of his name.) Dal's work is noted for its striking combination of bizarre dreamlike images with excellent draftsmanship and painterly skills influenced by the Renaissance masters. Dal was an artist of great talent and imagination. He had a love of doing unusual things to draw attention to himself, which sometimes irked those who loved his art as much as it annoyed his critics, since his eccentric theatrical manner sometimes overshadowed his artwork in public attention.
