Join us on YouTube for our new bimonthly video podcast featuring members of The Dalí Museum’s curatorial team and other Dalínian and Surrealist scholars. In this episode, we will join curator Dr. William Jeffett for a closer look at Dalí’s relationships with Surrealist writers through an exploration of frontispieces that he created for various works.

In this ongoing series, we will delve into the world of art archives and the often-unexpected gems that are uncovered in the course of researching Dalí, Surrealism and the myriad visiting exhibitions hosted at the Museum. From uncovering the origins of specific artworks to identifying inspirations and influences to revealing heretofore untold stories, each interview-style episode will focus on the examination of a different archive artifact and how it offers us a behind-the-scenes glimpse of art history. You can view past episodes of the series on the Museum’s YouTube channel, here.
