ABOUT DALI AND SURREALISM: Dali sublimated his life in his art of painting. Relying on great craftsmanship, acquired in all sorts of art experiments, he lifted surrealism, in an inimitable self-willed manner, to exceptional heights. As it were, he photographed associatively what was enacted in his mind. Incited by, at the time, new psychological insights he tried to fix his subconscious with images and to visualize his dreams in all their inscrutable symbolism. For this purpose, he developed his famous "paranoid-critical" method. To us, one-dimensional mortal souls, only the paintings and other expressions remain fascinating witnesses to an unbelievably intense and active life. Perhaps we are so drawn to them because not only do they allow us to have a look inside Dali's subconscious, but they also are a mirror reflecting our own souls. In the opening sentences of his manifest which was published some years before Dali says, "When during the history of its culture a people feel the need to cut the ties with which it is bound to the logical systems of the past in order to obtain an independent mythology - a mythology which perfectly fits its essence and its total expression of their biological reality and is recognized by the higher elite - then public opinion demands from the pragmatic society, considering its own systematic, that the motives for such a split is enlightened with traditional and worn out formulas.
