Dalí's Wonderland: A Journey through Surreal Art in Bruges

Salvador Dalí, an eminent painter and sculptor of the 20th century, gained renown for his unparalleled creativity and the surreal inventiveness manifested in his artworks. Renowned for his eccentric personality, he transcended the realm of a mere artist, evolving into the mythical figure we recognize today.

Did you know that Bruges boasts one of the most significant collections dedicated to the life and oeuvre of the surrealist maestro Salvador Dalí? The revitalization of the Adornes Hall within the enchanting medieval Belfry of Bruges, orchestrated by the Dalí universe, showcases an expansive exhibition encompassing one of the most extensive private collections spotlighting the resounding success of Salvador Dalí's art.

This exceptional exhibition showcases over 300 works from a private collection, including paintings, sculptures, engravings, surreal objects, and furniture – providing an immersive journey into the multifaceted genius of Salvador Dalí.

A unifying theme coursing through his captivating creations is dualism. This thematic concept, recurrent in Dalí's art, bequeaths extraordinary, captivating, and enduring masterpieces that resonate with viewers.

A pinnacle of the exhibition is the Alice in Wonderland collection. Though seemingly divergent from his customary oeuvre, Dalí illustrated an edition of the book in 1969. Observant viewers will discover intricately hidden characters and scenes, adding an extra layer of fascination to this captivating exploration of Dalí's artistic universe.
