Salvador Dalí was born on this day in 1904 and was a prominent Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain. What is left to say! Known the world over as an artist who brought the subconscious to us through his adherence to realism.
In 1922 Dalí began studying at the Real Academia de Bellas Artes de San Fernando in Madrid with a crowd that were to be later distingushed in their own fields, namely Pepín Bello, Luis Buñuel, and Federico García Lorca. Wow what a team!
