Salvador Dali, born 1904-1989
An eccentric artist who self promoted himself, sometimes drawing more attention to himself than his art, but it made him probably the most famous surrealist artist known today. I’ve visited his museum in St. Pete several times. He has some really amazing paintings and the really large ones are impressive to view. If you go visit, don’t forget to peruse the gift shop. I wonder if Dali made decisions on the products in the gift shop: melting time watch, perfume, mugs, jewelry (I like the elephant necklace).

Hallucinogenic Toreador and Geopoliticus are two of my favorites.
