Detail from Salvador Dali's painting "The Basket of Bread"

Dalí by the Decades

< All Exhibits

August 1, 2006 – January 1, 2007

A chronological exhibition of oil paintings, drawings, watercolors and objet from the Museum’s permanent collection cast against interpretive material including photographs, text and graphics showing the changing context – personal life and cultural times – in which Dalí lived and created. The dynamic and tumultuous time between the two World Wars acted as a catalyst for the development of Surrealism and reflects Dali’s particular blend of integrating his personal symbolic interpretations within the context of universally recognized symbols.

Curated by Joan Kropf, Dirk Armstrong and Elen Woods.
