In line with the great monographs of twentieth century artists presented at the Grimaldi Forum Monaco (SuperWarhol in 2003, Monaco Celebrates Picasso in 2013 and, more recently, Francis Bacon, Monaco and French Culture in 2016), the summer 2019 exhibition will be dedicated to “Dali, a History of Painting” curated by Montse Aguer, Director of the Dali Museums.
This retrospective is conducted in collaboration with the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dalí. In this year, the 30th anniversary of the artist’s death (1904-1989), the Dali exhibition a history of painting, offers the public an exceptional journey through Dali’s artistic production and allows it to discover the different stages of the artist’s creation.
It not only offers a retrospective view of Dali’s work, but also reveals how the painter has become enshrined in the history of twentieth century painting.
The public will thus be able to discover the different steps of his creation and to recognize the imprint of the different painters who influenced him, and to whom he paid homage.
The selection includes, to date, approximately one hundred works, including paintings, drawings and photographs, mostly from the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation in Figueres and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía in Madrid.
