Where Ideas Come From: Dalí’s Drawings

May 27, 2023 – October 22, 2023

This exhibition brings together approximately 100 rarely seen works on paper from The Dalí Museum’s permanent collection. Spanning the entire length of Dalí’s creative life, from 1916 through 1974, the exhibition provides insight into the artist’s creative process as seen over a variety of media, including pencil, pen, charcoal, watercolor, gouache, and more. Included in the exhibition are two new surrealist acquisitions by The Dalí Museum — the ballet-related portrait of King Ludwig for Bacchanale and the frontispiece The Disappearing Face as well as many recently-conserved works on view for the first time in over three decades, which are rarely displayed due to their delicate nature.
