Visit to the Dali Exhibition

Europe turned the clocks back one hour on Saturday evening – 1 week ahead of the US turning the clocks back. We took advantage of the extra hour and visited the Salvador Dali exhibition at the Yugoslavian History Museum near our home.

I had heard of Dali and knew of his surrealism painting style, his big moustache, and flamboyant lifestyle. The exhibition focused on his commissioned works by the Italian government to commemorate the 700th anniversary of Dante’s “The Divine Comedy”. The exhibition also featured a series of illustrations of Biblical themes he did in the 60’s. One of his Italian friends was trying to get him back to the Catholic church. It was a good opportunity for me to explain some of the Bible stories to Owen and Oliver. It made me think about the Catalan artist in a different light.
