Salvador Dali dies age 84


Dalí dies of heart failure in Figueres, Spain, after he is moved back there by his friends, family and supporters. He grows more and more obsessed with time and immortality as he dies.

Salvador Dali born in Figueres, Spain


Salvador Dali is born to Salvador Dali Cusi, a prominent notary, and Felipa Domenech Ferres. His mother often encourages his eccentric side. Dali’s artistic talent is obvious from a young age, and both of his parents support it. His mother dies when he is sixteen.
