This is background information.

Salvador Dalí is perhaps the most broadly known member of the Surrealist movement of the early twentieth century. Sigmund Freud had a strong influenced on Dali . His avant-garde style explored consciousness and dream-like states. He did this through exaggerated landscapes and bizarre or grotesque imagery. Using the means of painting, Dalí explored these ideas with a meticulous hand and inventive wit. He also used sculpture, printmaking, film and literature.
Although known for his role in Surrealism, Dalí was also a seminal example of celebrity showmanship and the cult of personality, a phenomenon that dominates popular culture today. Dalí was a master of self-promotion and spectacle.  He always had a colorful and flamboyant presence with his signature cape, wide-eyed expression and trademark upturned waxed mustache.
