Espace Dalí, located in the heart of the famous artists’ village, Montmartre, exhibits the largest collection of artworks by Salvador Dalí in France.
The collection is the fruit of the emblematic surrealist artist’s extravagant inspiration: theatrical sculptures, erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the inventor of soft watches.
Thanks to Dalí, everything can be transformed by the magic of dreams: the Space Elephant with spindly legs seems to defy gravity, a watch melts from a branch, a snail spreads its wings and Venus has drawers.
Dalí had an encyclopedic culture and was fascinated by major themes from literature, mythology and religion. He used many different techniques to illustrate universal texts: Alice in Wonderland, Romeo and Juliet, Don Quixote, The Bible… as well as more personal works, such as Moses and Monotheism or The Alchemy of the Philosophers.
