Eccentric, meticulous to the extreme, great connoisseur of Freudian theories, Salvador Dalí (1904 - 1989) has marked the history of surrealism as much as that of modern art. His technique, however, is based on a very advanced realism reflecting his passion for the Italian and Spanish old masters (Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Diego Velázquez...). Inventor of a method of spontaneous creation called "paranoia-criticism", the master willingly defined himself as a genius. His surrealist period remains one of the most striking in a body of work that spans nearly 70 years!
After graduating from high school, Dalí moved to Madrid to study art at the School of Fine Arts, with the consent of his father. He began to write down his impressions, in the form of a diary, and writing would play an important role throughout his life. He became friends with young intellectuals, including Luis Buñuel and Federico García Lorca. Receptive to authority, he had difficulty adjusting to the school climate and studied the Italian masters on his own.
