“The only difference between a madman and I is that I’m not crazy.”
Eccentric, meticulous to the extreme, a great experto on Freudian theories, Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was born in Figueres, Catalonia. He marked the history of Surrealism as much as that of modern art. Inventor of a method of spontaneous creation called “paranoia-critique”, the master willingly defined himself as a genius. Passionate about cinema, he contributed to Luis Buñuel’s work in films such as “An Andalusian Dog” 1929 or “The Golden Age” 1930. His surrealist period remains one of the most striking in a work that ran for nearly 70 years.
