Did you know?

  • Salvador Dalí’s brother was also called Salvador and he died 9 months before the artist was born – this lead Dalí to believe that he was the reincarnation of his brother, a theme which is often present in his works
  • Dalí’s eccentric nature was always expressed through his art. He attended the School of Fine Arts in Madrid, experimenting with Cubism - before getting expelled.
  • After moving to Paris and meeting Pablo Picasso he joined the Surrealism group, based in Montmartre
  • Dalí and his wife fled to America during WWII, where they ended up living for eight years.
  • The artist is believed to have created over 1,500 paintings in his life time (before he died in 1989) – and this doesn’t include his drawings, sculptures and short films, among other mediums

Sculptures
Dalí’s sculptures are highly recognised for his iconic style. Espace Dalí is home to the iconic The Space Elephant, a bronze sculpture depicting ‘the temptations of St Anthony’ which he used to symbolise the power of temptation with the glass obelisk. Another famous sculpture is his Alice in Wonderland, another bronze sculpture believed to represent and connect with Dalí’s own dream-like influences in his artistic expression.

Unknown sketches
Dalí's body of work is largely famous for his bronze sculptures, melting clocks, lobster telephone and paintings but there is also an extensive range of works that are mostly unkown by the general public. Explore his huge collection of pencil sketches and learn more about the artist and his inspirations.
