was a Spanish painter, writer, and member of the surrealist
movement. He was born in Figueras, Catalonia, and educated at
the School of Fine Arts, Madrid. After 1929 he espoused surrealism,
although the leaders of the movement later denounced Dalí
as overly commercial.
Dalí's paintings are characterized by meticulous draftsmanship
and realistic detail, with brilliant colors heightened by transparent
Dali often described his pictures as `hand-painted dream photographs.'
