Dali’s Boat: Paint Will Take Us Anywhere!
Deadline June 1, 2010
Exhibition June 12 - 27, 2010
By 1934 Salvador Dali had achieved his stride as a painter and image maker. That year he painted a number of paintings that featured boats drawn up on shore. He knew that he had arrived at full creative power. Exploration free of technical constraint led inland where he joined his colleagues in forging the look of the 20th century. The journey remains the same, the mode of travel - paint
