Dalí, from his particular vision, places Don Quixote in the extraordinary world of Dalí, the Cervantes passages are enriched with the painter’s own iconography, with elements explained with precision, architectural forms, figures, ants, pebbles, spiral sketched forms. They are intense anecdotes that revitalize the scenes.

Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí

(1904-1989) Dalí, the great multidisciplinary artist of the 20th century and of surrealism, is characterized by his striking dreamlike images, which already enjoyed prestige and popularity during his lifetime.

As an extremely independent and imaginative author, he always showed a remarkable tendency towards rather extravagant behavior. At the Student Residence, he was in contact with the great poet Federico García Lorca and the filmmaker Luis Buñuel.

At the presentation of the film “Un perro andaluz” by Buñuel, he met Gala, who would become his wife and muse, a key piece of his artistic creation.
