The Great Masturbator (1929) below was a gift by Salvador Dalí to the Spanish State, and it must have appealed to his sense of humor that the painting would go on display in the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid. At bottom (no puns intended) is Dalí pushing the limits of the boundaries between art and pornography with Young Virgin Auto-Sodomized by the Horns of Her Own Chastity (1954).
Dalí was buried in his home town of Figueres, Catalunya, in 1989. These days he is memorialized in the Dalí Theatre and Museum in the city (the Teatre-Museu Dalí website is here) - shown below with its characteristic eggs:
He lived most of his life not in Figueres but in Port Lligat (or Portlligat), at the easternmost part of the Spanish mainland. His house, shown below, is now a museum: Casa-museu de Salvador Dalí a Portlligat, their website here.
