Wifredo Lam was born in Sagua la Grande, Cuba, in 1902. His parents were of Chinese, African, and Spanish ancestry. In 1923 Lam moved to Spain to study art at the Museo del Prado, Madrid (under a former teacher of Salvador Dali) remaining in Spain another thirteen years.
Salvador Dali's interest in mythology developed from his readings of Sigmund Freud, who looked to the myths of the past in order to understand fundamental principles of the human psyche. After reading Freud, Dali wrote that he was "seized with the real vice of self-interpretation, not only of my dreams but of everything that happened to me, however accidental it might seem at first glance."
The Dali Museum in St. Petersburg presents Dali & Film, the first exhibition examining the profound relationship between the paintings and films of Salvador Dali (1904-1989). The exhibition reveals how Dali combined his skills in painting with the new and exciting possibilities of the moving image to define a new art.
Encounter Dali in depth through a selection of paintings from the Museum's permanent collection displayed with a focus on the hidden details. Seven works will receive a closer examination for Dali's particular blend of personal interpretation. Assisted by dynamic visual aids and illustrated panels, the paintings are interpreted section-by-section to analyze the dreams, desires and memories that inspired the work.
Curated by Joan Kropf, Curator of the Collection.

The exhibition presents Spanish master paintings alongside works by Dali from the Museum's permanent collection, demonstrating the importance of the incorporation of elements from Baroque painting into Dali's approach to painting and its pictorial language. Dali made frequent reference in his writings and even in the titles of his work to Baroque masters, which set himself up as a modern equivalent to artists such as Velázquez.
Discover the life & legend of Salvador Dali, and the places & events that transformed this Spanish son into a surrealist sensation.
