  • Surrealism and psychoanalysis, two movements that sought to free the subject of its repressions, maintained a close relationship from different perspectives, which reached its maximum under the representation of its main referents, Sigmund Freud, André Breton and Salvador Dalí. The latter stands for its intense desire to approach to the Austrian analyst, once he approached to the psychoanalytic work, trend of thought that influenced his artistic work and personal life. In this sense, a systematic review of literature was performed with the aim of recognizing the influence of the psychoanalytic work in the Salvador Dalí´s life and work. It was found that the relationship between this trend of thought and the Spanish artist is located in the theoretical and personal plane. Being an admirer of the psychoanalytical ideas Salvador Dalí incorporates them as theoretical foundation of the paranoiac-critical method, a proposal of artistic creation, giving place to paranoia as a systematizer element of confusion.
