On May 11, one of the most famous representatives of surrealism, the painter Salvador Dali, was born in the Spanish city of Figueres (Catalonia). Dali himself claimed that he was a genius already in his mother's womb.

By the age of 26, Salvador Dali had so annoyed his father with his strange behavior that he threw his son out of the house. For several months the artist lived in rented apartments until he bought a fishing hut near the village of Port Lligat on the Mediterranean coast, paying out of the money he received for the painting "The Old Age of William Tell".

For forty years, Dali and his wife Gala purchased several houses that stood next door, and created an exquisite villa with many outbuildings, labyrinths and lawns. The walls were decorated with selected paintings of the genius, which he refused to sell. It was here that the couple returned after long journeys in search of silence and inspiration.

In 1955, photographer Charles Hewitt came to visit the artist to take a series of pictures called "One Day with Salvador Dali". He, of course, did not miss the opportunity to show off his extravagance in front of the camera.
