This is Background Information

Salvador Dalí was a leading proponent of Surrealism.  This is a 20-century avant-garde movement.  It uses the potential of the creative unconscious. This is done through strange, dream-like imagery.  Dali said “Surrealism is destructive. It destroys only what it considers to be shackles which limit our vision.” Dalí is credited with the innovation of “paranoia-criticism.”

He meticulously painted fantastic compositions. The Accommodations of Desire is one example. This was painted in 1929.  The Persistence of Memory is another example. This was painted in 1931. It is an example of his famed melting clocks.

Dalí was a prolific writer. Also, he was an early filmmaker. He had a flamboyant mustache. This cultivated an eccentric public persona.  Further, he had a pet ocelot.   He had outlandish behavior and quips.  As an example, he said “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure.” The pleasure was “That of being Salvador Dalí.”
