This exhibition explores the much-overlooked relationship between two key figures in 20th-century art who have often been seen as mythical, stylistically self-driven figures with diametrically opposing political views.

 However, these two artists had a remarkable impact on each other. Picasso helped Dalí during his early years as a budding artist and in the 1930s they were both involved in the Surrealist project. They both reacted simultaneously to the horrors of the Spanish Civil War by producing works expressing the human suffering caused by the conflict. After the Civil War, Dalí referenced Picasso and paid tribute to him in his work. In the 1950s the two artists began to converge again around work by the great masters, Velázquez in particular.

This show presents paintings, drawings, etchings and sculptures by Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí—some of which are very rarely loaned—from over 25 museums worldwide, as well as documents setting the artists’ work in context.

Exhibition organized by Museu Picasso, Barcelona and The Dalí Museum, Saint Petersburg, Florida with the support of the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí, Figueres
