Visit the Dali Exhibition to see some of Dali's famous works, including The Space Elephant and Alice and Wonderland, as well unknown sketches

In the heart of Montmartre, the famous artists' village, the Espace Dalí presents the largest collection of works by Salvador Dalí in France. This collection is the result of extravagant inspiration of this iconic artist of Surrealism: theatrical sculptures, erotic drawings, dreamlike or irresistibly funny, poetic objects and furniture, populate the fantasy world of the inventor of soft watches.

The Surreal 3D
With Dalí, everything is subject to change by magic: Elephant Space paws of wader seems flee weightlessness, a watch runs a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus dons drawers.

Tales and Wonders
On an encyclopedic culture, Dalí was fascinated by the great themes of literature, mythological or religious. He illustrated by multiple techniques for universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible ... but also more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or Alchemy of the Philosophers. Each of these works is an art object.

 Sculpture, drawing, watercolor, etching, lithography, the Espace Dalí invites us to explore themes of his work: the dream, mythology, sensuality ...

Pleaes note: Espace Dalí will be closed for renovation work from 1 January 2018 - 30 April 2018 

Highlights:

  • The only permanent museum and art gallery in France dedicated to Salvadore Dalí and his works
  • Highlights major themes of universal literature, mythology, history, and religion
  • Displays the artist’s most famous surrealist masterpieces including sculptures and illustrations

Did you know:

  • Salvador Dalí’s brother was also called Salvador but 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 felt right at the start of his career when he attended the School of Fine Arts in Madrid and experimented with Cubism – before being expelled
  • After moving to Paris and meeting Pablo Picasso he joined the Surrealism group, based in Montmartre
  • Dalí and his wife fled to America, where they lived for eight years, during WWII
  • 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 artistic outlets…

Dalinian Sculptures

Dalí’s sculptures (and any piece of art for that matter) are highly recognised for his iconic style. At the Espace Dalí you can see 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.

Fabulous! The Paris Pass was great to have on hand during our trip. We only had 5 days, and with 3 children in tow, we wanted to keep things moving as much as possible. We would absolutely recommend utilizing The Paris Pass. In order to get the most out of it, I would encourage you to carefully look through the guidebook so that you can plan out a general guideline to follow for your trip to make sure that you are using all of the opportunities. Enjoy!
