Joined the Surrealists movement in 1929 and became surrounded by fellow artists who congratulated his unique imagery.
Produced more than 1500 paintings in his lifetime including The Peristence of Memory in 1931, the iconic melting watches.  He also worked in drawings, sculptures, making short films, writing books and creating lithographs.
