The Espace Dalí is devoted to Surrealism Master Salvador Dalí and more particularly to his sculptures and engravings. The museum displays around 300 original artworks.
Dali lived in Montmartre rich in artist workshops since the end of the 19th century. Dalí came to live at 7, rue Becquerel, in the apartment that Paul Eluard found in 1929 for Gala.
The place exhibits a collection of his works: theatrical sculptures,erotic, dreamlike or irresistibly humorous engravings, poetic objects and furniture, are all part of the phantasmagorical universe of the emblematic surrealist artist's extravagant inspirations. This is France's biggest collection of his sculptures, which represent a significant aspect of the artistic creation of Dalí.
Illustrating the major themes of universal literature, mythology, history, and religion. Salvador Dalí was inspired to create a vast repertoire of personalities, allegories, and unique images that you can discover here. Sculptures such as the Space Elephant or Alice in Wonderland are obviously presented but the visitor can also see other aspects of the Dalí, for example, Moses and monotheism, Memories of Surrealism, Don Quixote, etc.
There are two galleries: the Galerie Dalí which presents a selection of some of the artist’s works (sculptures, engravings and lithographs), and the Galerie Montmartre which shows several contemporary artists.
