Durante la década de los cincuenta, a SALVADOR DALÍ le preocupó el modo –para él servil– en que los críticos de arte se sometían a la dictadura de las vanguardias artísticas y, en particular, a la corriente más «moderna»: el arte abstracto.

Críticas à feiúra, ao modernismo, à técnica, entre comparações comestíveis, comuns a Dali, sendo a arte uma necessidade nutritiva.

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, 1st Marquis of Púbol, was a Spanish surrealist painter born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain.

Dalí was a skilled draftsman, best known for the striking and bizarre images in his surrealist work. His painterly skills are often attributed to the influence of Renaissance masters. His best known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in 1931.
