Goethe’s Faust is one of the most well-known narratives in history,
The story of Doctor Faust, a man who sold his soul to the devil in
exchange for power and knowledge in life, is a cautionary tale,
warning of the dangers of pride, greed, the devil on earth,
witchcraft and many other interpretations of the evils that man
faces daily. Faust has struck a chord with generation after
generation, and is an allegory used time and time again. Dali’s
suite entitled Faust, is his interpretation.

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.
