The first major exhibition to reevaluate the last half of Salvador Dali’s career will be presented exclusively at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
Among the highlights of the exhibition will be several works that have not been seen in the U.S. in 50 years, including the monumental “Christ of St. John of the Cross,” which was voted Scotland’s favorite painting in 2007, and “Santiago El Grande,” which has not left New Brunswick, Canada, since 1959. Designed as an altarpiece, this painting includes Dali’s vision of the Crucifixion, an homage to Saint James (the patron saint of Spain) and an atomic explosion. The exhibition will also feature “Assumpta Corpuscularia Lapislazulina,” from a private collection in Spain, which has not been seen publicly since 1959.
Salvador Dali also had a hand in high fashion. He was instrumental in designing fashion, textiles and had his own line of perfumes. Check out The Dream State Fashion for more information on his influence on fashion.
