Forthcoming exhibition

From October 2015 until January 2016
Mayoral will present an exceptional exhibition Master at metamorphosis of the artist in Barcelona showing an outstanding piece titled Anatomies from 1937. This artwork has been hidden for a long time, twenty-five years, and Mayoral will uncovered it and will bring it to light in October.

The exhibition, curated by Ricard Mas, curator and art critic specialized in Dalí, will put together this unique masterpiece with another thirty artworks among which there are: canvas, watercolors, collages, drawings and sculptures.

This show will include interesting rare paintings such as L’horta des Llaner from 1921, when Dalí was seventeen years old; he painted this work that represents his parents’ home in Cadaqués, well-known as his most inspirational village.

As well as, a very interesting selection of six Fashion Design drawings that the artist did on 1965. Dalí reached an agreement with the Wisconsin clothing manufacturer Jack A. Winter to design a line of clothing that would include beach, and swimwear, sportswear, and night and homewear for Autumn 1965, and then to show his designs in a travelling exhibition. The models were displayed in Paris that same year, but none of them were ever mass-produced.

“After important Dalí’s shows in prestigious important museums around the world like (Centre Pompidou París, Instituto Tomie Othake São Paulo, Centro Cultural do Banco do Brasil Rio de Janeiro, Museo Reina Sofía Madrid) and its successful public assistance, as well as his most important auction sales in these last five years, we are glad to present this international and powerful exhibition in Barcelona, one of our locations.” affirms Jordi Mayoral gallery’s Director.
