Slide1:

1 FIGUERES Dalí Theatre-Museum

Slide2:

Figueres is the birthplace of artist Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), and houses the Dalí Theatre-Museum, the main Dalí museum in Spain, designed by the artist himself. The museum houses one of the best Dalí collections of art in the world, featuring not only paintings and drawings, but also three-dimensional installations and sculptures. This is also where the artist is buried. The Dalí Theatre-Museum calls itself “the largest surrealistic object in the world” Aside from Salvador Dalí's works, there are works by other artists that the painter invited to be exhibited in his museum, such as Antoni Pitxot and Evarist Vallès, accompanied by other artist from the painter's own private collection, such as El Greco, Marià Fortuny, Modest Urgell, Ernest Meissonier, Marcel Duchamp, Gerard Dou and Bouguereau. In various galleries of the Theatre-Museum we can also find works by John de Andrea, Wolf Vostell, Meifrén and Ernst Fuchs. Since Salvador Dalí death in 1989, the crypt where he is buried can also be visited at the centre of the museum. This area was remodeled in 1997 to exhibit a collection of gold jewels designed by the artist.

Slide3:

The space formerly occupied by the audience has been transformed into a courtyard open to the sky. The main installation in the middle of the patio – “Car Naval. Rainy taxi” that has to be the largest Surrealist monument in the world. There are no museum guides that could be hired by visitors or possibility of paying for audio-guide, that’s the requirement of Salvador Dali due to the concept of surrealism – the precipitation must be individual!

Gala Contemplating the Mediterranean Sea which at Twenty Meters Becomes the Portrait of Abraham Lincoln When we stand further back, twenty meters, as the title prescribes, we can see that the head of Abraham Lincoln fills the entire canvas.  This painting was inspired by a Scientific American article Dali read about visual perception which investigated the minimum number of pixels needed to describe a unique human face.

Slide54:

One of the most noticeable features of the museum was the transparent reticular structure shaped like a geodesic dome that crowns the building which was entrusted by Salvador Dalí to the Murcian architect Emilio Pérez Piñero (1935-1972). That dome has now become the emblem of the Theatre-Museum and a great landmark  of  the city of Figueres
