The exhibition features a unique selection of Dalí’s paintings and drawings representing his wife and muse Gala. Most of them come from the artist’s own collection – he considered them so valuable that he wanted to keep them and to exhibit permanently in his Theatre-Museum in Figueres. Dalí admired Gala and throughout his career as a painter had created a vast mythology apotheosizing her as his personal Daemon. Her many disguises – Leda and Helen, Gradiva and Galarina – refer to the well-known Ancient and classical European narratives and at the same time reflect Dalí’s personal artistic metamorphosis.
The meeting will be held in Russian.
