Fruits and Flowers: Dalí’s Botanical Prints

June 2 – August 12, 2007

Emily S. Macey Gallery

This exhibition includes 24 prints by Salvador Dalí from his FlorDalí series. These prints demonstrate Dalí’s skill at creating collaged imagery from previously printed material as well as his own work. This exhibition has been curated and toured by the Salvador Dalí Museum, St. Petersburg, FL.

Throughout his career, Dalí (1904-1989) looked to old book illustrations for inspiration. In the four folios represented in this exhibition, visitors will see the transformation that occurs as he moves from working directly from original, scientific botanical illustrations to making additions to them and finally to combining images to create wholly new and utterly fantastic visual ideas.
