Published on February 1, 2024

The CCCB hosts the art historian and one of the leading experts on Salvador Dalí’s work, Tessel M. Bauduin, as she comes to examine the influences and contemporary impact of the greatest exponent of Surrealism.

Dalí was interested in various European art movements and artists who had preceded him, ranging from the British Pre-Raphaelites in the 19th century to the Dutch Golden Age artist Vermeer and the 15th century Florentine painter Paolo Uccello. This interest also influenced his technique, leading to a phase of meticulous painting reminiscent of the Renaissance. His works had a considerable impact on the Surrealist movement and continue to have a very significant influence on contemporary art worldwide.

This lecture will touch upon the presence of historical art in Dalí and art history as seen through his eyes, as well as a conventional art historical perspective of Dalí and his place in the pantheon of global contemporary Surrealists.
