SALVADOR DALÍ: Hand Painted Dream Photographs Selections From the Permanent Collection

< All Exhibits

September 1, 2003 – January 1, 2004

In 1935 Dalí wrote of painting, as “instantaneous color photography done by hand…” For him painting aspired to photography, with the technique so refined that it erased the artist’s hand. If Dalí moved from painting towards photography, so Fontcuberta has moved from photography towards painting. In doing so has questioned the truth-function of photography, asserting its artistic role.
