Salvador Dali Exhibition
At the weekend we went to the Dali Exhibition under the Belfry Tower in Bruges.
There were not many paintings but there were a lot of prints and sketches that weren't previously published. Nevertheless, we found it both inspiring and slightly disturbing. It also would have helped if there were more descriptions about Dali's life and his work.
The exhibition included Dali's interpretation of Alice In Wonderland. In 1969 he did 12 illustrations based on the story.
If you look carefully, throughout the paintings, you can see a small image of a girl in a dress with a skipping rope or umbrella above her head. We believe this is Alice and found it very interesting to see her appear in the paintings before us.
