In the popular imagination, possibly no other artist’s work is more recognizable than that of Salvador Dali´. Indeed, for many he is the ultimate mad artist, whose singular vision remorselessly probed his own psychological depths. His nightmarish visions and bizarre landscapes express the angst and turbulence of the twentieth century. Dali´’s creativity embraced many different modes of expression and was never constrained by any one style. Over eight decades, the prodigious range of Dali´’s activity spanned every conceivable medium, from painting and drawing to sculpture, film, furniture, books, stage design and jewelry, not to mention his highly eccentric public persona, which could be considered an art form in itself.
Selected by curator and art historian Paul Moorhouse, Assouline presents Salvador Dali´: The Impossible Collection, spotlighting 100 works by this extraordinary creative mind, exploring Dali´’s inspirations and array of influences, from Old Masters to realism, Impressionism, Fauvism and Cubism as well as experimental approaches that delved into his obsessions with religion, science and stereoscopy.
