'One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams' Salvador Dalí. Enigmatic, playful, deceptive, outrageous, and – above all – adventurous, the art of Salvador Dalí, like the man himself, defies easy description.
During a hugely productive working life that spanned much of the 20th century, he produced more than 1,500 paintings as well as other artworks and objets d’art including sculpture, jewelry, photography, etchings, lithographs, designs for theatre sets and costumes, plus commercial projects such as the Chupa Chups lollipop logo. Decades after his death, his trademark moustache and dandy outfits remain instantly recognisable, while his art has inspired and continues to inspire new generations of artists, from Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst.
This collection features pop-ups of seven of his most famous works:
• The Persistence of Memory
• Hallucinogenic Toreador
• Metamorphosis of Narcissus
• Dancer in a Skull
• Galatea of the Spheres
• Rose Meditative
• Fifty Abstract Paintings Which as Seen from Two Yards Change into Three Lenins Masquerading as Chinese and as Seen from Six Yards Appear as the Head of a Royal Bengal Tiger
