Event description

Description

Dalí was by far the most famous and popular Spanish Surrealist painter, despite being a member of the group for only 10 years. Although he spent some of his life in Paris and the USA, he started and ended it in Cataluña, which provides the background of many of his most well-known paintings. This lecture by Frank Woodgate examines some of Dalí’s most enduring images, including the ‘soft watches’ and Christ of Saint John of the Cross, and contrasts them with works by his contemporaries, including Max Ernst and fellow Spaniards Miró and Picasso.

This is the 4th lecture in a season of talks focusing on Spanish painting from the 16th to 20th centuries. You might also like to consider these lectures:-
