"Ballerina in a Death's Head" by Salvador Dali is his very famous painting.


Ballerina in a Death's Head falls under the category of the paranoiac-critical method, which is Dali's biggest contribution to the art world. His paintings feature a sort of ambiguity, dual concepts that have no link whatsoever. Optical illusions involve faces created by silhouettes of people or structures of buildings, tables, glasses, fruits and so on. Dali developed paranoiac-critical method the early 1930s, with an intention to impress his hero, Sigmund Freud. The aspect of paranoia that Dalí was interested in was the ability of the brain to perceive links between things which rationally are not linked. Dalí described the paranoiac-critical method as a "spontaneous method of irrational knowledge based on the critical and systematic objectivity of the associations and interpretations of delirious phenomena." Employing the method when creating a work of art uses an active process of the mind to visualize images in the work and incorporate these into the final product. An example of the resulting work is a double image or multiple image in which an ambiguous image can be interpreted in different ways.

The Spanish painter Salvador Dali remains one of the most controversial and paradoxical artists of the twentieth century. Over last few decades, Salvador Dali has gradually come to be seen, alongside the likes of Picasso and Matisse, as a prodigious figure whose life and work occupies a central and unique position in the history of modern art.   Dali has also come to be regarded not only as its most well-known exponent but also, to many people, as an individual artist synonymous with Surrealism itself. In addition, Dali was a great artist who was a great self-publicist and showman. The combination was an irresistible formula for success.
