Around 60 pieces by Salvador Dalí will be exhibited at Coya restaurant, located in Dubai’s Four Seasons Resort, from today.

 

Dalí’s work first came to the Middle East earlier this year and now you have another chance to explore the eccentric mind of an iconic artist.  What can you expect? Exhibit from the prominent Spanish surrealist includes ‘Surrealist Flower Girl’ and ‘Space Elephant’ alongside lithographs and photographs obtained from private collections from around the world.

 

 

In February, 60 images went on display in Dubai International Financial Centre where the star of the exhibition was ‘Shower of Jasmine’, an exclusive oil on canvas painting that was first exhibited to the world in 1954 in New York City at Carstairs Gallery, and then in 1998 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil at Museu Nacional de Belas Artes. The painting was kept in a private collection since then and got it’s third showing ever earlier this year.

 

Free to attend, World of Dalí will be open for viewing by the public until August 31.
