    SOLD- Bullfighting has always been a favorite in Spanish culture, and the theme of bullfighting comes up several times in Dali’s works. In the “Butterfly Bullfighter” both the fighter and the bull are swirled together in action. The bullfighter towers over the bull, decked with a butterfly for a head and butterflies on both shoulders and torso.

     

    About the Artist:

    Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a surrealist painter best known for his melting clocks. Dali was born in Spain to a wealthy family who encouraged him to pursue art. He studied in Madrid and later relocated to France where he met Pablo Picasso. His painting's typically featured dream-like motifs as he believed that dreams and imagination should take precedence over marginal human thought. Dali once said, "The only difference between me and a madman is that I'm not mad”. Salvador Dali is widely regarded as one of the most influential artists of the 20th-century.
