Palazzo Blu

Throughout his career Salvador Dalì was influenced by the great masters of the past. Spanish and Italian – and in particular Renaissance – artists inspired his work. Exhibition curator Montse Aguer – director of the Dalì Foundation in Figueres, Spain – selected 150 works, including paintings, watercolors and woodblock prints to illustrate the classical derivation of Dalì’s work. One of the most enigmatic artists amongst the Surrealists, Dalì’s work is characterized by himself. He is central and protagonist. The selected works include citations to Raphael, Cellini, Dante and Michelangelo. It is the first time that some of his late works (Moses, Christ from the Pieta of Palestrina, Giuliano de' Medici, Crouching Boy) are presented together as a uniform body of works that share style and theme.
