Dalí’s California Days on Display in New Exhibit
The clocks are turning backward … and melting. It’s a little-known piece of the Spanish legend’s history that Salvador Dalí spent much of the 1940s waiting out World War II and its aftermath in Monterey, California. Now, thanks to a local collector, more than 570 of the mustachioed artist’s works are on display at a Monterey history museum, the largest Dalí collection on the West Coast. Organizers are also hoping to boost the struggling museum with Surrealist dinner parties like Dalí used to throw nearby.
