Happy Birthday Salvador Dali!

Happy birthday to Salvador Dali!  A surrealist painter from Spain, his artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, photography, and collaborations with many other artists.

Dali's most famous piece, the "Persistence of Memory"



Dali was very eccentric and attention-grabbing in public.  He had a strong interest in science and based many of his paintings on scientific publications.



Dali's work even inspired a scene from The Simpsons!

Dali also had a pet ocelot which he named Babou!

Happy birthday again to Salvador Dali, one of the most influential artists of all time!
