Gala, Salvador Dali’s wife, exhibits in Barcelona
Organized by the Museu Nacional d’Art de Catalunya and the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, this is the first international exhibition dedicated to Gala: muse, artist and a key figure in twentieth-century art.
Companion to Dalí and before that, to the poet Paul Éluard, Gala is a key figure of the vanguards. This exhibition will present approximately 180 pieces that reconstruct her complex and fascinating character, revealing a woman who camouflaged herself as a muse while forging her own path as an artist.
The exhibition will also gather some 60 works that trace Salvador Dalí’s evolution as a painter, alongside a selection of paintings, drawings and photographs by other artists from the surrealist universe such as Max Ernst, Picasso, Man Ray, Cecil Beaton and Brassaï.
