Roger Higgins, World Telegram staff photographer - Salvador Domènec Felip Jacint Dalí i Domènech, Marquis de Púbol (May 11, 1904 – January 23, 1989), commonly known as Salvador Dalí  was a prominent Spanish Catalan surrealist painter born in Figueres.<br />
<br />
Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters.His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire includes film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media.<br />
<br />
Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes to a self-styled "Arab lineage," claiming that his ancestors were descended from the Moors.<br />
<br />
Dalí was highly imaginative, and also had an affinity for partaking in unusual and grandiose behavior. His eccentric manner and attention-grabbing public actions sometimes drew more attention than his artwork to the dismay of those who held his work in high esteem and to the irritation of his critics -
