As one of the true artistic geniuses of the twentieth century whose work encompasses various mediums, Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dali (1904 - 1989) was naturally interested in all forms of artistic expression. During his lifetime he mastered several forms of art including film, sculpture and photography and collaborated with artists from various areas of the community. He held shows throughout the world and it was at one such show in Paris that he met his future wife and muse Gala Eluard.
