Happy birthday, Salvador Dalí

It's Salvadore Dalí's birthday today! I love him because he was such a character—with that expressive face and distinctive 'stache. One of the most popular posts on this blog is on the 'rhino in art,' and specifically, Salvador Dalí's rhino, which was inspired by a woodcut by Albrecht Dürer in 1515, popularly known as Dürer’s Rhinoceros.
