Join us for a conversation about our upcoming special exhibit, "Dalí & the Impressionists: Monet, Renoir, Degas & More." In the first decades of the 20th century, before his involvement with Surrealism, Dalí closely engaged the major achievements of the 19th-century French Impressionist movement. In a range of luminescent landscape paintings, he represented the geography most personal to his life in Catalonia, Spain.
As Dalí became Dalí, Impressionism stayed with him, both its core principle of rebellion and the importance it placed on the artist’s keen observations of place. We hope that together—through this opportunity to reflect on the exhibition’s conception—we can unlock this little explored chapter of Dalí’s development as the artist we know today, while understanding more deeply the artistic legacy of Impressionism.
