Eccentric Spanish artist Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) is as known for his artwork today as he was during his time for his personality and grandiose behavior, reflected in his Surrealist artwork. He is most recognized for his paintings, namely ‘The Persistence of Memory’ completed in 1931, but his prolific career also included several ventures in film, sculpture, photography, and collaborative efforts with other established artists.

Singer, painter, photographer, art collector, dealer, cultural administrator, Alfredo Valente (1899-1973) was among the most cultured of the camera artists who chronicled Broadway. Born in Calabria, Italy, trained as a fine artist and also as an opera singer, he came to the United States in 1927. Valente documented a number of important figures, including Salvador Dalí.
