Dalí and the Surrealist Movement

Museum Lecture
William Jeffett, Chief Curator of Exhibitions, The Dalí Museum, St. Petersburg, FL

The period covered in the Meadows Museum’s current exhibition, Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929-1936, is considered a time when Salvador Dalí painted his finest works. Through an examination of the early exhibitions of Surrealist art that the Catalan painter participated in during these eight years, this lecture will provide an overview of Dalí’s work and his role within the Surrealist movement in Paris. Dalí would remain a member of the Surrealist group until 1939 when he had a final rupture with its leader, André Breton.
