This is background information.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age, Dalí is encouraged to practice his art. He eventually went on to study at an academy in Madrid. He went to Paris to interact with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, in the 1920s, .   These interactions led to Dalí’s first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting “The Persistence of Memory.”  This is a painting of the iconic image of melting clocks in a landscape setting.  Dali used the melting clocks in several of his later works.  However, that didn’t stop him from painting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989. Click on this link for additional background information on Salvador Dali.
