    (October 28, 1909-April 28, 1992)
    Raised in Dublin and London
    Famous for his surrealist paintings
    He was a slob.
    He drank a lot.
    His paintings are full of horror, blood and disgusting imagery.
    He said he wanted his art to 'leave a trail of human presence, as the snail leaves its slime.'
    He destroyed many of his early paintings in a fit of temper.
    He was cynical.
    He believed life was meaningless, and said if he hadn't been an artist he would have been a criminal.
    He said in an interview that he was sexually attracted to his father.
    He was unpretentious.
    Although a millionaire, he hung out in seedy working-class pubs.
    His parents had him horsewhipped as a child in the hopes of 'toughening him up.'
    They kicked him out when they learned he was gay.
    Some consider him the greatest British painter of the 20th Century.
