The great, extraordinary and highly unpredictable Spaniard Salvador Dali was born in an unusual family, where his mother was deeply religious, and his father was an ardent atheist.
As a child, Dali was a restless, spoiled boy, who was not distinguished by good academic performance at school, and soon showed craving and aptitude for drawing. Parents were proud of their son and, wanting to give him a decent education, sent him to study at the Madrid Art Academy. But even here he does not study, he treats teachers arrogantly, considers his talent to be much higher than the abilities of any of them.
Such unworthy behavior led to expulsion from the Academy. A year later, Dali recovered and was re-expelled forever. However, unfinished education did not affect the work of the author. Dali has his own exhibition, where he, by coincidence, meets Picasso.
The painting “Transition Moment” was written in 1934. She has a lady in a white dress. Subject composition with a woman in white Dali uses often. It is believed that this is a symbolic image of the artist’s early deceased cousin.
The wagon fancifully bends, and at different angles of consideration it takes on different features: now bones, now distant cities. Such illusiveness is characteristic of many creations of Salvador Dali.
When the Second World War began, the artist emigrated to the United States, where he was very well received and even given the opportunity to organize a personal exhibition in the Art Museum.
About the work of Dali in his lifetime were legends. The infinite number of personal exhibitions, the number of subjects created are incredible. Particularly striking is the fact recorded by the Tein Gallery, where one of the exhibitions of the Surrealist Dali was organized, when it was visited, by conservative estimates, two hundred and fifty million people.
