A temporary exhibition was inaugurated at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres.

It's a portrait of Dalí's sister, Anna Maria, the Dalí Foundation bought last March at Bonham's London.

The temporary exhibit we are presenting is entitled Salvador Dalí, Apprentice Painter and can be seen from tomorrow 14th November until the end of 2018 in one of the Loggias Room, at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. We wanted to coincide with the day the exhibition at Dalmau Galleries opened in 1925.
