Salvador Dali modern art work
Masterpiece Paintings Gallery About Salvador Dali and his Modern Art Paintings Salvador Dali, 1904-1989, famous Spanish oil painting artist!
     Pablo Picasso called the infamous surrealist Salvador Dali (1904-1989) “an outboard motor that's always running.” Dali was a Taurus, painter, sculptor, writer, film maker, exhibitionist and eccentric. He painted his first picture at the age of six, wanted to be Napolean at seven, had his first exhibition at the age of 14 and was the first artist to apply the teachings of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to his paintings.

    Except for his exhibition at the Museum of Art in Denver, Colorado, 1955 was relatively quiet and uneventful for Dali with little artistic output except for his enormous (65.7 x 105.5 in / 167 x 268 cm) Sacrament of the Last Supper, an excellent example of his crusade to reduce the value of anything that passed as current “taste" at the time, particularly Cubism, Expressionism, and abstract art.
     Dali made no secret of his wish “to kill modern art and engage in any activities that could diminish the prestige of modern art. “Today's young painters believe in nothing. It is only normal for someone who believes in nothing to end up painting practically nothing, which is the case in the whole of modern art, including the abstract, aesthetic and academic varieties, he said.
     Sacrament of the Last Supper contrasts greatly with his diamond and emerald-embedded, 18-carat gold The Space Elephant of 1956 and his most erotic painting of all, Young Virgin Autosodomized by her Own Chastity done in 1954 and now a part of the Playboy Collection in Los Angeles.
     Dali's ego and need for attention were never satisfied. His thirst for scandal was unquenchable. And
“the thought of not being recognized was unbearable, he said. He used to walk through the streets of New York ringing a bell whenever he felt people were not paying him enough attention. “Every morning when I wake up I experience an exquisite joy — the joy of being Salvador Dali — and I ask myself in rapture what wonderful things this Salvador Dali is going to accomplish today.
     Many people considered Dali insane. However, Dali disagreed:
“... the sole difference between me and a madman is the fact that I am not mad!
