Tomorrow Figure in profile will be exhibited

A temporary exhibition was inaugurated at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres. Ms. Montse Aguer, Director of the Dalí Museums and exhibition's curator described it as a way of evoking the monographic show at Dalmau Galleries of year 1925, where Figure in Profile was exhibited for the first time and only. 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.
