Visit of the Dalí exhibition in Nantes

Leave a Comment
Another one in a series of French posts. Art yes, fashion no. Anyway, it is about the recently finished exceptional exhibition by Salvador Dalí (December 26 - March 31). At La Rosière D'Artois in Nantes, there was more than 300 works shown. As a admirer of his work, of course, I could not miss it.

The works presented as part of the exhibition Dalí in Nantes are from a private collection, usually presented at Espace Dalí in Paris. They were perfectly highlighted in the different rooms of the stunning 3-floor venue. Among the paintings there were many ink drawings and watercolous that shows Dalí' work and inspiration from different period.

I don't intend to make this post a never-ending story, but I have to mention what truly caught my eye. No more, no less... the sculptures. There were dozens of them, different sizes, different styles (equally twisted), divided between the different rooms. Personal favorite is  Femme à la tête de roses (Woman with head of roses) and Rhinoceros habillé de dentelles (Rhinoceros dressed in lace).

The overall impression is that I am delighted to have had a chance to visit an exhibition that took me on a journey to another time and space.
