About the Dali Museum Paris exhibition

In the heart of Montmartre, a famous artists' village, Dalí Paris exhibits the largest collection of Salvador Dalí's works in France. This collection is the result of the extravagant inspiration of this emblematic artist of Surrealism: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly funny drawings, poetic objects and furniture, populate the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches.

Surrealist 3D
Thanks to Dalí, everything becomes subject to transformation through the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with the legs of a stilt-walker seems to escape weightlessness, a watch flows from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus is adorned with drawers.

Tales and Wonders
From an encyclopedic culture, Dalí was fascinated by the great themes of literature, mythological or religious. He has illustrated with multiple techniques universal texts: Alice and Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible... but also more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers. Each of these works is a work of art.

Sculpture, drawing, watercolour, engraving, lithography, the Dalí Space invites us to explore the main themes of his work: dream, mythology, sensuality...

Did you know:

  • Salvador Dalí’s brother was also called Salvador but he died 9 months before the artist was born – this lead Dalí to believe that he was the reincarnation of his brother, a theme which is often present in his works
  • Dalí’s eccentric nature was felt right at the start of his career when he attended the School of Fine Arts in Madrid and experimented with Cubism – before being expelled
  • After moving to Paris and meeting Pablo Picasso he joined the Surrealism group, based in Montmartre
  • Dalí and his wife fled to America, where they lived for eight years, during WWII
  • The artist is believed to have created over 1,500 paintings in his lifetime (before he died in 1989) – and this doesn’t include his drawings, sculptures and short films, among other artistic outlets…

Dalinian Sculptures
Dalí’s sculptures (and any piece of art for that matter) are highly recognised for his iconic style. At Dalí Paris you can see The Space Elephant, a bronze sculpture depicting ‘the temptations of St Anthony’ which he used to symbolise the power of temptation with the glass obelisk. Another famous sculpture is his Alice and Wonderland, another bronze sculpture believed to represent and connect with Dalí’s own dream-like influences in his artistic expression.

Unknown sketches
Although Dalí is most famous for his sculptures in bronze, melting clocks and paintings, there is also a huge body of work that it unknown by most of the public. Explore his huge collection of pencil drawings at Dalí Paris and learn about some of the more unrecognised pieces in his body of works.
