Salvador Dalí: A life as a “Surrealist”

Estrella de Diego

In the summer of 1929, Gala Éluard and Salvador Dalí met in Cadaqués, a turning point for both of them and also for Surrealism. Estrella de Diego, essayist, academic and professor of Contemporary Art, introduces Dalí's Surrealist period, his relationship with the group, his influences, as well as the beginning of his relationship with Gala. To do so, she illustrates this period through Dalí's pictorial production during those years, as well as by referring to other works such as André Breton's novel Nadja (1928) or the Ampurdan native's fictitious memoirs, The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí (1942).
