Exposition Dali & Halsman
Du 05/12/2012 au 18/03/2013
Philippe Halsman, a long time friend of Salvador Dali, sees Dali as the quintessential surrealist who "wants to startle and shock with every one of his actions." Halsman's photographs of Dali, taken in the fifties and I early sixties, bespeak his understanding and appreciation of Dali s irrational and quixotic genius.
The ten 11 x 14 photographs in this exhibit teem with contemporary images that jolt the viewer out of lassitude into a whirling spire of unacknowledged emotions. Each photo reflects Dali's belief that surrealism requires an ability to explore and master the irrational.
