Dali was always much more than one of Surrealism’s leading figures. A virtuoso, gifted with dazzling skills and technique, Dali was a painter, designer, sculptor, writer and set designer as well as a master engraver who could produce equally outstanding work in dry point, etching, woodcut or lithography. The exhibition’s pieces de resistance are the illustrations of Dante’s The Divine Comedy, for which each of the lithographs presented required as many as 35 colors. There are a total of 100 pieces included in this exhibition.
