Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol (11 May 1904 – 23 January 1989) was a Spanish Surrealist artist.

Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931, and is one of the most recognisable Surrealist paintings. Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, and photography, at times in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

Dalí was highly imaginative, and also enjoyed indulging in unusual and grandiose behavior. To the dismay of those who held his work in high regard, and to the irritation of his critics, his eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork.

    Los Caprichos – Como Los Gambas Medium: Original colour Dry-point and Helio Etching Description: 227 years after the birth of Spanish master Francisco Goya, Salvador Dali had an idea to transform Goya’s “Los Caprichos” and present a new work. Goya’s “Los Caprichos” was an artistic experiment exposing the foolish superstitions in 18th century Spanish society. Goya described the series as depicting “the innumerable foibles and follies to be found in any civilzed society, and from the common prejudices and deceitful practices which custom, ignorance, or self-interest have made usual”. The body of work was withdrawn from public sale before their planned release in 1799. Only a formal order from King Carlos IV kept Goya from being called before the Spanish Inquisition. In 1973 Salvador Dali created a metamorphosis of Goya’s suite into a colourful surrealist masterpiece. From the numbered edition of 200, each piece is hand signed by Salvador Dali and is a genuine rarity for the Dali and Goya admirers.
