Almost as much as Gaudi impressed me I have to say that Dali disappointed me. Instead of being creative and ground breaking he felt like a child without thoughts or ethics. It felt as he was more a reflection of the time a creator of something new. Especially the way he treated animals made me feel really bad. Of course the phenomena of Dali is still fascinating and many of his paintings thought provoking, but I have carried a feeling that he had an agenda that he wanted to say something.
