From Salvador Dali Museum, Florida:
Throughout his career, Dali wanted to be more than just a traditional oil painter. He accomplished this in two ways – by experimenting with the visual image and by working in other media. Through such non-painterly projects as writing, filmmaking, fashion design, and object construction, Dali broadened his perspective on art. Trained as a painter, new ideas from other media inspired Dali’s painting. For example, Dali’s creative artists’ primer The 50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship led him to explore science more fully in his paintings in the 1950s. As a painter, Dali questioned the traditional ways in which an image represents a subject. Experiments such as the double image allowed Dali to make an object become something completely different, undermining stability and adding a level of chaos to his work.
