Salvador Dali Timeline

Space X Timeline

Today, 114 years ago, subversive Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí was born. Best known for the bizarre and intriguing images used in his work, the man behind the famous “I don’t do drugs, I am drugs” quote distinguished himself not only as a preeminent artist, but also as a maverick in his personal life. One of the salient members of the Surrealist movement, he dabbled in several artistic disciplines other than painting. He worked with film directors, designed jewelry and costumes, and created advertisements, sculptures and installation art, all with a quirky sense of experimentalism.

To celebrate the author of the iconic ode to time - “The Persistence of Memory”, we have created the Salvador Dalí Timeline, which retraces some of the most notable events in his life.

Born in Figueres as Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, he attended the drawing school and, at the age of 13, had his charcoal drawings exhibited in his family home by his father. Three years later, the Municipal Theatre in his hometown hosted his first public exhibition. Dalí then enrolled at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando in Madrid, where he also first came into contact with the Surrealist movement. Expelled from the Academy right before his final exams under the accusation of having started an unrest, he nevertheless continued his creative endeavors that were to turn him into an enduring figure in the history of art.

Although generally associated with specific works nowadays, Dalí is still impossible to pin down. Creator of hallucinatory dreamscapes, indulging in off-the-wall behavior, he equally inspired and appalled, and was simultaneously revered and despised; however, he unquestionably captured everyone’s attention. He was banished from the artistic group to the recognition of which he significantly contributed, but also appeared on the cover of Time magazine, was the madman in one of the sequences of Hitchcock’s film Spellbound, and ultimately made an undisputable impact on the 20th century art.

The Salvador Dalí chronology was built with Office Timeline, a user-friendly PowerPoint add-in that enables you to create professional-looking timelines, project schedules and other similar visuals with ease. You can update or edit the image using the Plus version of the tool.

Jack Nicholson Timeline

Jack Nicholson Timeline

On the 22nd of April, revered actor and filmmaker Jack Nicholson turns 81. Having performed for more than 60 years as a lead or secondary character in a large variety of films, he has garnered a panoply of nominations and awards that make him the most nominated male thespian in the Academy’s history. To wish him a happy birthday, we created the Jack Nicholson Timeline, which illustrates a few major life events and the most celebrated movies in which he was cast.

After training to be an actor with the Players Ring Theater, a 26-year-old Nicholson debuted in a low-budget noir crime flick (The Cry Baby Killer). This was followed by a series of small parts that gave the young starter a sense of no progress in his career.

It was the performance in the road movie Easy Rider that turned the odds in Nicholson’s favor and marked his breakthrough within the industry. With his interpretation of the alcoholic lawyer George Hanson, not only did he receive his first Oscar nomination for a supporting role, but he also became an overnight representative of the anti-hero image and developed a strong cult following.

Taking advantage of his big break, the talented actor gained momentum and landed leading roles one after another, each bringing him a new nomination and a richer range of acting skills.

He won his first Oscar for Best Actor in 1975 with his role as Randle McMurphy in Academy-award sweeping movie “One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest”, the second one for Best Supporting Actor as a retired astronaut in “Terms of Endearment” in 1983, and the third one for the leading role in “As Good as It Gets” in 1997.

Even though his representation of Jack Torrance in The Shining didn’t bring him any awards, it nevertheless remains one of his most memorable roles. Stanley Kubrick, the director of the classic horror film, considered Nicholson to be the first choice for the lead character and often encouraged him to improvise on the set. This is how the actor came with the now famous line “Here’s Johnny!” which went beyond the script, along with other scenes.

The Jack Nicholson chronology was created with Office Timeline, a simple yet efficient PowerPoint plugin that enables you to easily build smart timelines, project schedules, Gantt charts and other similar graphics. The image is free to copy, reproduce and share, and you can quickly update or restyle it using the Plus version of the tool.

Leonardo da Vinci Timeline

Da Vinci Timeline

April 15, 2018, marks 566 years since the birth of Italian polymath of the Renaissance era Leonardo da Vinci. Best known today as one of the greatest painters in the history of art, with The Last Supper and Mona Lisa as his most famous works, he was also an architect, engineer and inventor. An avid and self-educated explorer of many other areas of interest such as music, anatomy, botany, geology and cartography, he is widely regarded as the epitome of the Renaissance Man or the Universal Genius. It is because of this abundance of diverse pursuits that his artistic output was quite small. However, recent research on his work has raised awareness and admiration for him as a scientist and humanist as well.

To celebrate the visionary mind whom some historians consider as one of the most multi-talented individuals to have ever lived, we created the Leonardo da Vinci Timeline, which overviews his life and most famous paintings, as his overall legacy is yet to be unraveled.

For da Vinci, art was inextricably linked to science and nature, which channeled his curiosity and inventive imagination into filling dozens of notebooks with observations, scientific diagrams and theories about a wide range of subjects. Fusing art and natural philosophy, his eclectic manuscripts are written in mirror-image cursive. Some account secrecy for this style of writing, whereas others think it was more of a practical expediency for the left-handed Leonardo. The notebooks, which remained unpublished during his lifetime, are now housed in several museum collections such as the Louvre in Paris, the Biblioteca Ambrosiana in Milan, and the British Library in London.

Encrypting information was a practice that Leonardo used not only for his journals, but for his paintings and drawings as well. All of his famous works include detailed elements of geometry and anatomy. This feature, along with innovative painting techniques, subtle gradation of tone and rendering of human emotions, made his work unique and reproduced by generations of artists.

Even half a millennium after his death, Leonardo da Vinci continues to fascinate art critics and scholars. In November 2017, a recently discovered painting attributed to him, Salvador Mundi, was sold for the world record sum of $450.3 million.

The Leonardo da Vinci chronology was designed with Office Timeline, a simple to use PowerPoint add-in that helps you easily create professional-looking timelines, project plans and other similar visuals. The slide, which can be copied and shared for free, is easily editable using the Plus version of the tool.
