Plains Art Museum Exhibits "Salvador Dalí’s Stairway to Heaven"
Salvador Dalí’s "Stairway to Heaven" is the first major Salvador Dalí exhibition in North Dakota.
Known as one of 20th Century’s foremost masters of Surrealism, Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) has ignited the imagination of international viewers and artists for decades. Salvador Dalí’s Stairway to Heaven portrays 143 works on paper in a comparative study of two of Dalí’s most celebrated portfolios: his book illustrations for the Comte de Lautréamont’s Les Chants de Maldoror (The Songs of Maldoror, originally published in 1868-69) and Dante Alighieri’s The Divine Comedy (originally published 1320). Together, they express a progression in Dalí’s personal life in which he ultimately returns to order, reason and tradition, and presents his un-paralleled grandiose creativity.
