Salvador Dalí’s secret to success is perhaps best summed up in this quote: “Start out drawing and painting like the old masters. Then, later, you’ll be able to do what you want: everyone will respect you.” The trailblazing Surrealist artist’s relationship to the Renaissance masters is the subject of an upcoming exhibition at Pisa’s Palazzo Blu, Dalí: Il Sogno del Classico.

Ph. Courtney Runn

Running from October 1 to February 5, 2017, the show will feature over 150 works on loan from the Fundación Gala-Salvador Dalí di Figueres (Spain) and the Dalí Museum (St. Petersburg, Florida), displayed alongside Italian Renaissance art from the Vatican Museums, among other institutions.

Highlights include a series of paintings inspired by Raphael, numerous works revisiting Michelangelo’s sculptural masterpieces, drawings depicting the life of Benvenuto Cellini and an elaborate re-interpretation of Dante’s Divine Comedy, which was displayed at Florence’s Palazzo Medici Riccardi during summer 2015.

The exhibition will be open Monday to Friday from 10am to 7pm, with hours extended to 8pm on weekends. For more information, call 050/2204650 or see Palazzo Blu’s website.
