2010/10 Milan: Salvador Dalí Exhibition

On the 29th of September 2010 at Palazzo Reale in Milan, an "anthological" exhibition on the works of Salvador Dalí - the Catalan painter most famous for his waxed and pointed moustache, his eccentricity and his masterly pictorial technique - was inaugurated, and will run until the 30th of January 2011. Composed of circa fifty works, including watercolors and drawings, this exhibition does not shed any light on the origins of the artist's great fame. The number of important works on show is insignificant and only eight of the chosen paintings - which are not at all well-chosen - date to the Thirties, when the artist was at the peak of his career.

 

In the introduction to the exhibition catalogue, the curator Vincenzo Trione dedicated a considerable portion of his essay to the relationship between Dalì and metaphysical painting. You can read a more detailed, comprehensive review of this exhibition entitled Dalì: which metaphysics? in the OPINION section of this website.
