The Imaginations and Objects of the Future series was born of the concerted effort of a Chicago-based gallerist to convince Dalí to do a set of prints about the future. It was proposed on three separate occasions over a period of years before Dalí agreed to the undertaking. The art critic Alan Artner wrote in the Chicago Tribune wrote that Dalí seemed to reference the Old Masters within his works. Additionally he noted that this series, “Imaginations and Objects of the Future”, shows an overwhelming influence of Leonardo Da Vinci’s sketchbooks. The works also displays Dalí’s interests in technology, life, death, nuclear warfare, and his artistic legacy.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
