conserved 2 oil paintings & 85 works on paper
Our awe-inspiring building houses & protects the preeminent collection of Dalí’s works. With our collection now approaching 100 years of age, two precious pieces were repaired and conserved: Au Bord de la Mer (Salvador Dalí, c. 1931. Oil on canvas) and The Broken Bridge and the Dream (Salvador Dalí, 1945. Oil on canvas), as well as 85 works on paper, ensuring any existing damage is repaired while future damage is prevented.
Both paintings had a variety of conservation methods applied to enhance the vitality of each painting including surface cleaning, varnish/glazing adjustments and overall improving the protection and support of the aging canvases.
