Boutique Gallery will open an “Exclusive Dalí Exhibition” on Friday, March 18th featuring a selection of Salvador Dalí sculptures and graphics from The Dalí Universe Collection in the beautiful and elegant setting of Sint-Martens-Latem, in Belgium. Perhaps most famous for Rene Magritte there is, of course, a well-known tradition and love of Surrealism in the country of Belgium.
This new exhibition at the prestigious Boutique Gallery focuses on the work of Spanish “Master Of Surrealism” Salvador Dalí (1904 – 1989). It is the result of a fruitful collaboration between the Dalí Universe and The Boutique Gallery, bringing the exceptional collection of bronze sculptures conceived by the master of Surrealism in the Belgian Village, and a unique opportunity to admire the wealth of the Dalinian surrealist iconography that the Catalan artist created during his lifetime.
“The Boutique Gallery hosts these iconic Dalinian works for the first time, offering the extraordinary opportunity to admire a selection of limited edition multiple sculptures and graphic works, which are part of the Dalí Universe Collection, inside the wonderful spaces of the Belgian art gallery”, announced James Sanders, Project Manager of The Dalí Universe.
Amongst the twelve sculptures of The Dalí Universe Collection that Mr. Beniamino Levi, President of The Dalí Universe, started collecting in the Seventies, following his meeting with Salvador Dalí, will be exhibited “Alice in Wonderland”, “Nobility of Time”, and “Horse Saddled with Time”.
Aside from the sculptural artworks, it is possible to admire a selection of fascinating and decorative graphics from The Dalí Universe Collection that will reveal the spectacular artistic creativeness of Salvador Dalí, including “Homage to Fashion”, “Flordali I” and “The Puzzle of Life”.
“Salvador Dalí was not only a painter, but a multi-faceted artist in the true sense of the word”, commented Mr. Beniamino Levi, adding: “Dalí himself said ʻPainting is an infinitely minute part of my personalityʼ ”.
The multiple editions bronze sculpture “Nobility of Time” will illustrate to the public the Dalinian obsession of time through the melting clock, one of Dalí’s best-known images, whose origin is the famous 1931 painting “The Persistence of Memory”.
It was Mr. Beniamino Levi himself who inspired Dalí’s sculptural production. During the meetings with the Catalan artist, Levi had noted Dalí’s fascinating ability for using different means to express his art and decided to dedicate all his life to collecting Dalí’s works, concentrating on his three-dimensional works.
The exhibition “Exclusieve Dalí Tentoonstelling” will be open until Sunday, May 29th, 2022.
