Salvador Dalí: L’homme poisson (1930)

Salvador Dalí, An Early Surrealist Masterpiece
Meadows Museum, Dallas, Texas

Exhibition closes: 7 August 2016

The 1930s were one of the most creatively fruitful decades of Salvador Dalí’s career. L’homme poisson (The Fish Man) shows both his tremendous imagination as well as his technical adroitness, and offers a revealing glimpse into the artist’s inner psyche. After an auspicious beginning as part of the first exhibition of surrealist works held in the U.S., in 1931, the painting has remained out of the public domain for much of its existence. This exhibition celebrates the Meadows’ acquisition of L’homme poisson—the first painting by Dalí to enter the collection of a Texas museum—and presents a renewed look at this early masterpiece within the artist’s oeuvre of surrealism.
