400 euro: Centenary of the birth of Salvador Dalí
Series: Spain: Gold 400 euro coins
The year 2004 commemorates the centenary of the birth of the great painter Salvador Dalí who was born in Figueras in 1904. His very personal style transcended artistic movements such as cubism and surrealism, to become what he himself defined as the paranoid-critical approach. The 400-Euro coin presents a portrait of Salvador Dali on the obverse, and an interpretation of the painting "Figure at a window" (1925) on the reverse.
