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.

Museu Picasso, Barcelona
20 March-28 June 2015
Exhibition organized by the Barcelona museum and the Dalí Museum, St Petersburg, Florida to explore the mutual admiration and rivalry between these two key figures in twentieth-century art. Art works and documents from the time reveal the counterpoints and contradictions throughout their relationship, from their first meeting in the 1920s, when Dalí visited Picasso’s studio after making his first avant-garde forays, through the 1930s and their friendships with leading intellectuals―André Breton, Paul Éluard and Georges Bataille―through to their opposing positions following the Spanish Civil War.
