Dalí - Chagall Hall

Dalí - Chagall Hall 


The Dalí - Chagall Hall consists of etchings and sculptures, unpublished works by both artists, which evoke the shocking and surreal dreamlike images of the early twentieth century.

Salvador Dalí (1904 - 1989), besides painting also dealt with film, sculpture and photography, which led him to collaborate with other visual artists, thus forging an intensely personal and recognizable style. He attributed his love for all things golden and excessive and his passion for luxury and for Oriental fashion, to a self-proclaimed Arab lineage that traced its roots to the time of Arab domination of the Iberian Peninsula.

Marc Chagall (1887 - 1985) originally depicted many biblical themes reflecting his Jewish heritage. His works are connected with different currents of modern art and are rich in references to his childhood, communicating joy and optimism by the use of strong and vivid colors.
