Salvador Dali was known for his surreal paintings. Apart from being a painter, he was also a draftsman. He used symbolism in his works and there were objects that he often used, for
instance elephants and eggs. He also dabbled in making sculptures, shooting photos and contributing to the different areas of the fashion industry.
In fashion, Salvador Dali worked closely with the fashion designer Elsa Schiaparelli. Schiaparelli hired Dali to create a dress with a lobster print. Apart from that, he also created a shoe-shaped hat and a belt, perfume bottles and designs for textiles. Not a lot of people know that Salvador Dali also made contributions to the fashion magazine Vogue. Vogue is known to have models and other famous personalities on their covers.
For four of their issues, Vogue used the art of Salvador Dali. Appearing on the April 1, 1944, issue, this one features letters denoting spring, birds flying in the air forming Dali's visage, and a mystical, surreal landscape.
