16 Vintage Portraits of a Very Young Salvador Dali From Between the 1920s and 1940s

Salvador Dali is one of the most revered surrealist artists of our times. His ability to shock and entertain made his paintings popular to many people. Many of today’s artists have been inspired by Dali’s work.

Salvador began drawing and painting while he was still young. He painted outdoor scenes such as sailboats and houses. He also painted portraits. Even as a teenager he experimented with modern painting styles such as Impressionism. When he turned seventeen he moved to Madrid, Spain to study at the Academy of Fine Arts.

In 1931 Salvador Dali painted what would become his most famous painting and perhaps the most famous painting of the Surrealist movement. It is titled The Persistence of Memory. The scene is a normal looking desert landscape, but it is covered with melting watches.

Here are 16 interesting vintage photos of a young Salvador Dali from between the 1920s and 1940s:
