Dalí Museum in Figueres

This wonderful and world famous museum is not directly located in Barcelona, but only a short train ride of 1.5 hours away in the city of Figueres – Dali’s hometown. It is also one of the most popular and prestigious museums in the North of Spain. The building itself is an art masterpiece as it is the former Municipal Theater, and is considered the largest surrealist object in the world.

The museum displays the broadest range of Dalí’s artistic career (1904-1989), from his earliest artistic experiences and his surrealist creations down to the artworks of the last years of his life.

Some of the displayed works are:

Port Alguer (1924), The Girl from Figueres (1926), The Spectre of Sex Appeal (1932), Soft Self-Portrait with Fried Bacon (1941), Poetry of America – The Cosmic Athletes (1943), Galarina (1944-45), Basket of Bread (1945), Napoleon’s Nose Transformed into a Pregnant Woman Strolling Her Shadow with Melancholic amongst Original Ruins (1945), Atomic Leda (1949), Apotheosis of the Dollar (1965), Galatea of the Spheres (1952) and Dawn, Noon, Afternoon and Evening (1979).
