Subseries F. "Salvador Dali." February 16 - May 31, 2005

Date:
1958-2008

Scope and Content Note

In honor of the 2004 centenary of Salvador Dali's birth, curators Michael Taylor and Dawn Ades (a guest curator for the show) created "Salvador Dali," a retrospective devoted to the artist's life work. The show was a sensation, and is widely considered to be one of the most successful exhibitions ever organized by the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Palazzo Grassi in Venice was the only other venue at which this exhibition was shown. The bulk of the files are dated from 2004 to 2006.

Arrangement

Files are arranged according to the curatorial department's original order and subdivided into four categories: administrative files, object files, research/lecture files, and The Dali Renaissance.
