Surrealist Salvador Dali (1904 – 1989) enigmatically reworks a classic painting by maritime artist Montague Dawson in “The Ship.” Blazing new trails in Surrealism, Dali used his Paranoiac-Critical technique paired with meticulously realistic detail to depict a dream world of commonplace objects rendered in a highly unconventional fashion. Extraordinarily imaginative, Dali also sculpted, and contributed to fashion, photography and theater.
Flamboyant and groundbreaking Spanish artist Salvador Dali is considered one of the 20th century’s greatest artists. An icon of the Surrealist movement his blend of eccentric perspectives and controversial influences resulted in wildly imaginative, unforgettable dreamscapes that are uniquely Dali. Inspired by Freud, Dali accessed his subconscious to create more intense artistic expression. Creatively prolific, he produced 1,500 paintings, along with sculptures, drawings, films, clothing and jewelry.
