The exhibition presents Spanish master paintings alongside works by Dalí 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. Dalí 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.
Co-curated by Dr. William Jeffett and Suzanne Stratton-Pruitt.
