Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936

Dalí: Poetics of the Small, 1929–1936 focuses a lens on what is arguably the apex of artist Salvador Dalí’s career, beginning with his formal acceptance into the Surrealist group in 1929 and ending in 1936, when his notoriety had reached such a high point that he landed on the cover of Time magazine. Nearly two dozen paintings, drawn from private collections worldwide as well as noted institutions such as the Metropolitan Museum of Art, The Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, and Teatro-Museo Dalí in Figueres, Spain, will examine his predilection for the small and its possible inspirations, including the influence of photography and collage, and his love for the precise works of Dutch masters like Johannes Vermeer. These cabinet paintings from the height of Dalí’s career have never been systematically studied or exhibited as a cohesive group, and the Meadows Museum is the only venue for this exhibition.

Tues. - Sat.: 10 a.m. - 5 p.m.;
