About Salvador Dali:
The Spanish Catalan surrealist Artist, Salvador Dali was born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain. In 1931, Salvador Dali painted one of his most famous paintings, The Persistence of Memory
. Sometimes called Soft Watches or Melting Clocks, the painting introduced the surrealistic image of the soft, melting pocket watch. The general interpretation of the work is that the soft watches debunk the assumption that time is rigid or deterministic, and this sense is supported by other images in the work, such as the wide expanding landscape and the ants and fly devouring the other watches.
