Dalí’s Jewels: The Persistence of Sound

Epitomising the essential spirit of the Surrealist movement, Salvador Dalí was a veritable “Renaissance Man.” His talents stretched far beyond his extraordinary gifts as a painter and draughtsman, with an artistic repertoire also included film, sculpture, poetry, photography and theater. Some of his lesser known pursuits include an exquisite ensemble of nearly forty jewelry projects, created between 1941 and 1970, that capture the attention and imagination like nothing else. Closely tied to his paintings and other objects, Dalí’s jewels are a triumph of technical virtuosity and spectacular visual brilliance, embodying his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive.”
