The Dali Museum in Figueres
The Dali Theatre Museum in Figueres was inaugurated in 1974 and over the years has grown to be one of the main tourist attractions in the Barcelona region. The extraordinary design of the former theatre, the outstanding work of Dali that is on display and its location in the beautiful city of Figueres make it worthwhile a visit, whether you are an art lover or not.
In the early 1960s Salvador Dali (1904-1989) began to create the museum, which is now considered to be the largest surrealistic object in the world, on the ruins of the Figueres Municipal Theater. He dedicated himself to this project over a decade, being excited by the objective of bringing together all his work in his birthplace.
Next to the impressive and detailed work that can be observed on the building, the museum contains the broadest range of works of the artist. It displays work ranging from his earliest artistic experiences to surrealistic creations, to those created over the last years of his life. It exhibits some of Dali´s most outstanding work such as The Girl from Figueres (1926), The Spectre of Sex Appeal (1932) and Soft Self-Portrait with Fried Bacon (1941) and next to paintings and drawings also shows sculptures, installations and photography of this exceptional artist.
