Dalí’s Craftsmanship: A Closer Look

Museum Double Lecture
Claire Barry, Director of Conservation, Kimbell Art Museum
Irene Civil, Head of Conservation and Restoration, Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, Figueres

Join us for a special double lecture examining Dalí’s paintings and processes used in his early small-format works. Civil’s talk, “Salvador Dalí’s Techniques and Studio Practice in Panel Painting,” will discuss the artist’s techniques in oil on wood panel through the examination of two small portraits of his wife Gala. Barry’s talk, “Dalí Through the Magnifying Glass,” will discuss the technical analysis she carried out on a group of nine paintings as part of the Meadows Museum exhibition Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936.
