Spanish surrealist painter Salvador Dali was resting Monday after a quiet night in Figueras Hospital, where he was taken a day earlier suffering from pneumonia and a heart condition, his doctor said.

Dr. Carlos Ponsati said the 84-year-old Dali's condition, though serious due his advanced age, was stable. "He spent a calm night and his fever has gone down" since his hospitalization Sunday, Ponsati said.Dali, who was born in this small Catalonian town in northeastern Spain near the French border, is best known for his paintings of limp watches over troubled landscapes and other disturbing works.
