Salvador Dalí was born in 1904 in the small agricultural town of Figueres, Spain. The son of a prosperous notary, early recognition of his talent came with his first one-man show in Barcelona in 1925. Dali became internationally known when three of his paintings were shown in the Carnegie International Exhibition in Pittsburgh in 1928. The following year, Dalí held his first one-man show in Paris. He also joined the surrealists, led by former Dadaist Andre Breton. That year, Dalí met Gala Eluard when she visited him in Cadaques with her husband, poet Paul Eluard. She became Dalí's lover, muse and business manager. Dalí soon became a leader of the surrealist movement. His painting, The Persistence of Memory, with melting watches, is one of the best-known surrealist works. By 1940, Dalí moved toward a new style that eventually became known as his "classic" period, which was preoccupied with science and religion. Dalí and Gala escaped from Europe during World War II, spending 1940-48 in the U.S. New York’s MOMA gave Dali his first major retrospective in 1941. In 1942, he published his autobiography. After the death of his wife in 1982, Dalí's health began to fail. He died in 1989. Dali will always be remembered as a consummate 20th century painter and showman.
