Dalí was known for his role in Surrealism. He was also a seminal example of celebrity showmanship and the cult of personality. This is a phenomenon that dominates popular culture today. Dali was always a colorful and flamboyant presence. This is reflected by his signature cape, wide-eyed expression and trademark upturned waxed mustache. Dalí was a master of self-promotion and spectacle. Click on this link for additional background information on Salvador Dali.
