Did you know that Salvador Dalí believed he was his dead brother’s reincarnation? Furthermore, interestingly, there is also a portrait or a silhouette of Dali in each one of his paintings. He has produced over 1500 paintings in his lifetime, many of them regarded as masterpieces, and single handily sustained the mainstream surrealist movement to keep alive. Even though he sought to never explain his own work, he has said that the idea for his iconic melting clocks in ‘Persistence of Memory’ came from chunks of Camembert cheese he observed melting in the sun—although he may have been joking. #DidYouKnow #Surrealism
