Salvador Dali
(1904 - 1989)

Spanish painter, graphic artist, filmmaker, writer.

A modern master of the surreal arts, Salvador Dali's works continually challenged convention by questioning the antithesis of surrealism: our normal sense of the "real."

Surrealism's objective was to make accessible to art the realms of the unconscious, irrational and imaginary.

Created in 1971, Memories of Surrealism consists of 12 hand-signed lithographs with etching, printed in colors. This suite is the quintessential example of Dalinian symbolism and surrealism. Included in these works are crutches, clocks, butterflies, Gala and Dali himself; all important symbols that describe Dali's artistic progress. Perhaps more so than any other portfolio created by the artist, Memories of Surrealism provides a glimpse into the most creative corners of Dali's eccentric mind.
