Description of the photograph

Salvador Dali reading his biography on May 6, 1959. Photograph by Spanish artist Salvador Dali (1904-1989), taken by Terry Fincher for the Daily Herald. Dali is reading Fleur Cowles 'book The Case of Salvador Dali' (1959), while on a Folkestone train, after traveling from France. Cowles' book was an authorized biography of Dali. With a studied expression of shock on his face, Dali enjoys the opportunity to take pictures. One of the most famous, charismatic and famous artists of the twentieth century, Dali devoted himself to drawing and painting from an early age. Highly influential as a surrealist, one of his most famous paintings is 'The Persistence of Memory'. In the 1950s, Dali turned to the demonstration of scientific, historical and religious themes in his work. Later in life, he founded the Dali Theater-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation at Pubol Castle in Spain - the latter to manage his legacy.
