The exhibition from private collections in the framework of long-term cooperation of the Irkutsk Art Museum provided the exhibition center "Art Bank" from St. Petersburg. Irkutsk citizens will be able to see several graphic series of the master for the first time. The exhibition includes 60 color graphic works of Salvador Dali from collections of private collectors and galleries in Europe and America. The exposition included lithographs from the Carmen series (8 selected works from a unique edition of 1968), Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (12 works, 1969/1984), Dalinian Horses (18 works, 1972/1983 ), as well as 20 illustrations to Pedro de Alarcon’s The Three-Cornered Tale, made in woodcut technique in 1958. The collection is crowned by a magnificent triptych The Trilogy of Love (1976), which has become a cherished dream of collectors from around the world. Salvador Dali. Great hoaxer. Genius or madman. The master, who turned his own life into a legend, in which fantasies are inseparable from true memories, and the true face of the artist is hidden under the usual mask of an eccentric. What is the origin of the mysterious image of a genius, what makes up the secret message of his work? Perhaps out of barely perceptible childhood memories, fairy tales and dreams? Or from the strong bonds that connected the "true Spaniard" with his native country, with its traditions, passions and mysticism? Or maybe the root of everything is the love of a woman who became not just a spouse for Salvador Dali, but “a talisman, a jewel, a totem, a Madonna, mother”? Or, finally, the key to the heart and mind - the magic dreams of the artist fanned by magic: frightening, mystical, erotic - dreams in which the mind is “freed from the shackles of logic and common sense”?
