Notes: Salvador Dali was a Spanish surrealist painter best known for his bizarre artworks. He is widely considered to be one of the leaders of the Surrealist Movement and his work The Persistence of Memory (1931), which shows soft, melting pocket watches on a beach, is likely the most recognizable surrealist painting of the Surrealist movement. Dali regularly worked in other forms of art besides painting, including sculpture, photography, film, fashion and drawing. John Peter Moore first met Dalí in 1956 when he was working with film producer and director Alexander Korda in Rome, and arranged payment to the artist for his painting of Laurence Olivier as Richard III. The two became friends. In 1960 Dalí employed Moore as his personal secretary and, from 1965, as his business manager. Although he was replaced in 1975, he maintained good relations with Dalí and Gala. With his wife, Catherine Perrot, he opened the Perrot-Moore Museum in Cadaqués in 1978 to show his collection of over 1,500 original Dalís to the public. Some were gifts from the artist, others he had acquired through dealers, collectors and public sales.
