Clyde Butcher: Visions of Dali’s Spain Debuts This Summer
Famed Photographer Captures the Landscapes of Salvador Dali’s Life in a Collaboration Across Time
St. Petersburg, Fla (March 12, 2018)– Beginning this summer, visitors to The Dali Museum will be able to immerse themselves in stunning images of Dali’s homeland on a grand scale. Clyde Butcher: Visions of Dali’s Spain will open to the public on June 16 and provide a view of Dali’s surroundings as seen by Florida’s greatest nature photographer, Clyde Butcher. Known as the “Ansel Adams of the Florida landscape,” Butcher’s photographs are technically brilliant, their large format creating a euphoric experience of immersion. His works have become an influential part of Florida’s cultural landscape, showcasing the true beauty of Floridian swamp and marsh environments.
For Salvador Dalí, the landscape of his homeland was always an essential feature of his work and outlook on life. The Dalí Museum sought Butcher’s talents to capture the spirit of Dali’s Mediterranean home, located in one of the world’s most dramatic landscapes. With a discerning and selective eye, Butcher traveled to the village of Cadaques, where Dalí spent summers while growing up, Dali’s house in Port Lligat and the rugged region of Cap de Creus – all areas that are prominently featured in Dali’s works – delivering a peek into his psyche. The thoughtfully curated collection will feature 41 photos that take viewers on a journey through the Catalonian region, with beautifully printed photographs ranging from an intimate 2 feet to a panoramic 8 feet in width. The exhibit is Butcher’s first photographic exhibition of Spain, as well as the first time he has been commissioned to photograph an area that influenced another artist.
“We’re dedicated to sharing the art, life and world of Dali with our community,“ said Peter Tush, Dali Museum Curator of Education. “This show allows us to do just that in an immersive, yet intimate way. Butcher captured the sublime beauty of Dali’s Mediterranean world in exquisite detail, providing a portal between their two worlds for our guests to explore.”
“Clyde Butcher: Visions of Dali’s Spain” is co-organized by The Dali Museum, Clyde Butcher and his family. The exhibition is curated for The Dali by Dali Museum Curator of Education, Peter Tush.

MORE FROM THE DALI
Currently at the Museum, the highly acclaimed Dali/Duchamp exhibition continues now through May 27. This singular exhibition is the first of its kind dedicated to the friendship and mutual influence of two of the twentieth century’s greatest artists – the father of conceptual art, Marcel Duchamp, and Salvador Dali, the champion of traditional painting and the imagination. As an entirely new discovery on a theoretical level, Dali and Duchamp – while generally thought to represent completely different approaches to art – were by contrast more related than often assumed. The unique exhibition showcases their world of shared ideas, from the provocative to the playful.
Dali/Duchamp is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to view significant works of both iconic artists in one room, with over 50 works including some of Dali’s most technically acclaimed paintings never before seen at The Dali – Christ of Saint John of the Cross (c. 1951), Apparition of Face and Fruit Dish on a Beach (1938) and Two pieces of bread expressing the sentiment of love (1940) – as well as Duchamp’s groundbreaking assemblages and ready-mades.
Dali/Duchamp is organized by The Dali Museum, St Petersburg, FL and the Royal Academy of Arts, London, in collaboration with the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation and the Association Marcel Duchamp. Exhibition curated by Dawn Ades and William Jeffett, with Sarah Lea and Desiree de Chair. The exhibition contains challenging images, including adult content.
