Biography
  • Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domenech was born
    on May 11, 1904, in the small agricultural town
    of Figueres, Spain, in the foothills of the
    Pyrenees.
  • He spent his boyhood in Figueres and at the
    family's summer home in the coastal fishing
    village of Cadaques where his parents built his
    first studio.

  • The young Dali attended the San Fernando Academy
    of Fine Arts in Madrid.
  • Early recognition of Dali's talent came with his
    first one-man show, held in Barcelona in 1925. He
    became internationally known when three of his
    paintings, including the Basket of Bread were
    shown in the third annual Carnegie International
    Exhibition in Pittsburgh in 1928.

  • The following year Dali held his first one-man
    show in Paris. He also joined the Paris
    Surrealist Group, led by former Dadaist, Andre
    Breton. That year Dali met Gala Eluard when she
    visited him in Cadaques with her husband, poet
    Paul Eluard. She became Dali's lover, muse,
    business manager, and chief inspiration.

  • Dali soon became a leader of the Surrealist
    Movement. His painting, Persistence of Memory
    (1931), is still one of the best known surrealist
    works. But, as war approached, the apolitical
    Dali clashed with the Surrealists and was
    expelled from the Surrealist movement during a
    "trial" in 1934. He did, however, exhibit works
    in international surrealist exhibitions
    throughout the decade.

  • By 1940 Dali was moving into a new style which
    eventually became known as his "classic" period,
    demonstrating a preoccupation with science and
    religion.

  • Dali and Gala escaped from Europe during World
    War II, spending 1940-48 in the United States.
    These were very important years for the artist.
    The Museum of Modern Art in New York gave Dali
    his first major retrospective exhibit in 1941.
    This was followed in 1942 by the publication of
    Dali's autobiography, The Secret Life of Salvador
    Dali.

  • In 1974, Dali opened the Teatro Museo Dali in
    Figueres, Spain. This was followed by
    retrospectives in Paris and London at the end of
    the decade
  • After the death of his wife, Gala, in 1982,
    Dali's health began to fail. It deteriorated
    further after he was burned in a fire in his home
    in Pubol in 1984.
  • Two years later, a pacemaker was implanted. Much
    of this part of his life was spent in seclusion,
    first in Pubol and later in his apartments at the
    Torre Galatea, adjacent to the Teatro Museo.
  • Dali died January 23, 1989 in Figueres from
    heart failure with respiratory complications.
