Gala Salvador Dalí foundation was presented:
The new addition to the museum
Visiting Casa Salvador Dalí is always well worth the effort – not only for the spectacular views onto the bay and its ever-changing light, but also for the many details such as photos, decor, and works of art. Now, there is another good reason to pay a visit to the world of Dalí and Gala: the olive groves just behind the house. Partially open to the public during this year’s summer, there are many surprises just waiting to be discovered. There is Dali’s Milky Way, for example, where he and his muse are said to have walked on stilts. Furthermore, his egg-crowned garden studio can also be found in this very olive grove. Under the studio’s translucent roof, the artist and master of illusion used to create the sculptures and performances he had dreamt about. The charismatic surrealist and his contemporary artists are now closer than ever – due to video installations.
The new addition to the museum was presented to press and public by Antoni Pitxot, deputy president of the Gala Salvador Dalí foundation, and Lluis Penuelas, the foundation’s secretary, in August. Just before sunset, and with a glass of Cava, is the best time to stroll through the garden and be ever so slightly jealous at Dali and Gala, who used to have this lovely and enchanting sanctuary of a garden all for themselves. Luckily, the garden is still the paradise it used to be back then and the feeling of peace and quiet has been preserved up until today.
