‘I myself am surrealism,’ said Dali, in his self-assured signature style. And the best way to test this statement is with a wander around this Montmartre museum, dedicated entirely to the eccentric Spanish surrealist. There are no fewer than three hundred works by the artist on display, including sculptures, prints and drawings. The most famous among them is ‘the Dance of Time’ and ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Capturing the fantastic scope of his career, Espace Dali also works to make sense of his protean skills, as he experimented with colours, shapes and techniques over the years. This museum does an excellent job at rendering the artist’s genius.
