"Salvador Dalí's Optical Illusions"
2000-07-22 until 2000-10-01
Scottish Natinal Gallery of Modern Art
Edinburgh, , UK United Kingdom

Salvador Dalí's Optical Illusions examines the pictorial techniques employed by the great Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). The exhibition focuses on the artist's life-long fascination with illusion, visual perception and distortion, and will display over 50 of Dalí's most important paintings.

Although best-known as a revolutionary and iconoclastic Surrealist painter, Dalí was deeply indebted to art of earlier periods and continually sought ways to combine traditional images and techniques with scientific findings. His fascination with the dream led to some of the twentieth century's most brilliant and disturbing visualisations of the unconscious.

The exhibition explores how the artist's double or dissolving images relate to scientific thought and study, and examines the techniques Dalí developed in anamorphic perspective, pointillism and stereometry. It also analyses Dalí's use of photography and hologram. Organised by the Wadsworth Atheneum at Hartford, Connecticut, this is the only showing of the exhibition outside the USA. A fully illustrated catalogue, featuring essays by guest curator Professor Dawn Ades, accompanies the exhibition.
