Salvador Domingo Felipe Dali Domenech, Marques de Dali de Pubol (1904 - 1989), known professionally as Salvador Dalí, was a prominent Spanish surrealist and one of the most well-known, infamous, grandiose artists of
the 20th century. Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. Dalí’s expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.

This lecture will cover his artistic career, which spanned the 20th century, as well as stories from his personal life.
