Dalí Theatre-Museum

Dalí Theatre-Museum - Catalonia news

The Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres is the largest surrealistic object in the world. A work of art itself, which houses the Dalí largest collection in the world: Thousands of items of the Salvador Dalí’s life and more than 4,000 works from various disciplines, including painting, sculpture, jewelry, photography, holograms, etc.

Its rooms embrace works that cover the entire career of the great painter, from his beginnings when he experimented with Futurism, through his surrealist period, reaching late works. Port Alguer (1924), Galarina (1944-45), Dematerialization Near the Nose of Nero (1947) or Dawn, Noon, Afternoon and Evening (1979) are some examples. Dalí created some works expressly for the Theatre-Museum, such as the Mae West Room, the Wind Palace Room, the Monument to Francesc Pujols and the Rainy Cadillac.


Also to be seen are works by other artists that Dalí wanted to include: El Greco, Marià Fortuny, Modest Urgell, Ernest Meissonier, Marcel Duchamp, Wolf Vostell, Antoni Pitxot and Evarist Vallès, amongst others.


The Dalí Theatre-Museum is part of the “Dali Triangle” in Empordà, along with the Gala Dalí Castle in Púbol and Salvador Dalí House-Museum in Portlligat. Inaugurated in 1974, the Dalí Theatre-Museum was built upon the remains of the former Figueres theatre, a building of the mid-nineteenth century, which was destroyed by a fire at the end of the Spanish Civil War in 1939. The basic structure was saved, but only as a phantasmagorical ruin. And, above these ruins, Salvador Dalí wanted to create “the new, unsuspected and hallucinatory world of Surrealism.”
