Salvador Dalí is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20thcentury and the most famous Surrealist. Though chiefly remembered for his painterly output, in the course of his long career he successfully turned to sculpture, printmaking, fashion, advertising, writing, and, perhaps most famously, filmmaking in his collaborations withLuis BuñuelandAlfred Hitchcock. Dalí was renowned for his flamboyant personality and role of mischievous provocateur as much as for his undeniable technical virtuosity. In his early use of organic morphology, his work bears the stamp of fellow SpaniardsPablo PicassoandJoan Miró. His paintings also evince a fascination forClassicalandRenaissanceart, clearly visible through his hyper-realistic style and religious symbolism of his later work.
