This is background information.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904.  He was born in Figueres, Spain. From an early age, Dalí was encouraged to practice his art. He eventually studied at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris.  He interacted with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró.  These interactions led to Dalí’s first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting “The Persistence of Memory.  This painting shows the iconic image of melting clocks in a landscape setting.  Dali used the melting clocks in several of his later works. Francisco Franco rose became a fascist leader in Spain.   Dali was expelled from the Surrealist movement.  However, that didn’t stop him from painting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
