An exclusive exhibit of Salvador Dali’s late work will be on display at the High Museum of Art from Aug. 7, 2010 through Jan. 9, 2011. The show will feature more than 100 works that explore the artist’s evolution past his involvement with the Surrealism movement, including his connection to and influence on famous “pop” artists of the 1960s and 1970s, such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Willem de Kooning.
Some of the highlights of the exhibition, like “Christ of St. John of the Cross” and “Santiago El Grande,” haven’t been seen in this country for more than 50 years. In addition to 40 paintings, drawings, prints and other articles will be on display, illustrating Dali’s fascination with science, Catholicism, optical effects and illusionism.
“Salvador Dali: The Late Work” is produced by the High in conjunction with the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla., and the Fundacio Gala-Salvador Dali in Figueres, Spain. Atlanta’s High Museum of Art is the only venue this exhibit will appear at. For tickets or more information, visit high.org.
