A beautiful collection of portrait photography greets you as you step into the first room of the exhibit. The Dalí Portraits (1971) by French photographer and Dalí’s friend, Marc Lacroix, are quirky introspections into the eccentric daily life of the artist. This is counter balanced by the tapestry collection, 12 tribes of Israel (1975), which was Dalí’s interpretation of religious perspectives through art.
The playfulness of the Alice in Wonderland series shows a different side to the artist and perhaps a shared love with Lewis Carroll’s fascination with time. The abstract design tells the familiar story in a new whimsical way.
Another charming and insightful aspect of the exhibition is the inclusion of portrait photography of Dalí with his wife, Gala. Gala was Dalí’s most important muse and a constant source of inspiration for the artist, featuring in many of his paintings.
