Bronzes from the Vault

June 6, 2019 – November 3, 2019

Publisher Isidro Clot contracted with Salvador Dali in the 1970s to make a series of sculptures. In the mid-1980s, the Museum acquired a set of the cast bronzes which became part of our permanent collection. A. Reynolds Morse subsequently prepared a small catalog of the works.

We are pleased to display several of these rarely seen objects in the James Family Wing for a limited time.

Additionally, the Spanish group 2049 Obra Contemporanea S.A. is casting the original compositions in enlarged versions approximately 6.5 to 10 feet in height. Four of these large format sculptures will be exhibited in the Avant-garden. Terpsichore (pictured below; conceived c.1973-79, cast 2014), is a gift to the Museum and will be installed permanently on the grounds for visitors to enjoy for years to come.
