Regarder, c’est inventer
Dalí Paris exhibits over 300 artworks by Salvador Dalí from a private collection. Painting, sculptures, etchings, surrealist objects and furniture bring to life the peculiar ideas of an insatiable explorer, passionate about atomic science, the Antiquity, the Renaissance, alchemy or religion.
Salvador Dalí never stopped modeling, transforming. His sculptures are one of the major aspects of his life work, materializing in three dimensions his surrealistic obsessional motifs: soft watches, spindly legs animals, open or closed drawers.
Salvador Dalí had an encyclopedic culture, and reinvents major texts from international literature by illustrating them: Alice in Wonderland, Don Quichotte, the Bible, offering an infinite variety of forms and colours, from delicate watercolors to striking splashes.
