I have only done a few paintings with Dali. I always
find his work so far out that I get stuck with the composition
....until now! I love this piece and all the drama and passion
it projects. Nothing is prettier than red with black and white.
I would love to have that sofa and carpet!
In researching him today I find that I 'was born on his
birthday. Humm....is that good or bad?

Salvador Domènec Felip Jacint Dalí i Domènech, Marquis de Púbol (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989), commonly known as Salvador Dalí was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figures, Spain,
Dalí was a skilled  draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His Painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance  masters] His best-known work,  The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.
Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to a self-styled "Arab lineage", claiming that his ancestors were descended from the  Moors
Dali was highly imaginative, and also had an affinity for partaking in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem and to the irritation of his critics.
Dali produced over 1,500 paintings in his career in addition to producing illustrations for books, lithographs, designs for theatre sets and costumes, a great number of drawings, dozens of sculptures, and various other projects, including an animated short film for Disney.
