Participating in this event were Ramon Boixadós, Chairman of the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation, Montse Aguer, Director of the Centre for Dalinian Studies, and Xavier Vidal-Folch, Assistant Manager of the newspaper El País.
The curator behind the exposition on display in the Púbol House-Museum is Montse Aguer, who wrote the introduction to the catalogue - a publication that also features an interesting essay by the researcher Estrella de Diego. The catalogue, which is sponsored by the "la Caixa" savings bank, was published by Distribucions d'Art Surrealista, its design being the work of Bis Dixit.
The exhibition shows 67 photographs by photographers such as Meli, Joan Vehí, Batlles-Compte, Juan Gyenes, as well as other excellent occasional photographers such as Luis Buñuel, and internationally recognised photographers such as Man Ray, Brassai, Eric Schaal, Philippe Halsman and Cecil Beaton. Some of the photographs have never been shown before. As a whole, the collection guides visitors through the biography of Salvador Dalí's muse. The exhibition is divided into four spheres, reflecting four highly distinct facets of Gala: Elena Ivanovna Diakonova, Gala Éluard, Gala Dalí and Gala the muse. Reproductions of paintings and drawings by Dalí are also on display, putting Gala's influence on the artist's work into context
