Dali's Theatre Museum in Figueras - Spain

Figueres is the capital of the comarca (district) of Alt Empordà, in the province of Girona, Catalonia, Spain. It is located near the Pyrenees and the French border.

The town was the birthplace of artist Salvador Dalí, and houses the Teatre-Museu Gala Salvador Dalí, a large museum designed by Dalí himself which attracts many visitors.

Salvador Dali was a surrealist. Surrealism is an art movement in which the mind is supposedly liberated and so the unconscious mind can be used along with the dreamlike state gained in order to create images etc that are truer than reality or more than real. So some of the works of art may look a little strange and you have to use your imagination.

Dali's Theatre Museum in Figueras - Spain.

Dalí had an affinity for doing unusual things to draw attention to himself. This sometimes iritated those who loved his art as much as it annoyed his critics, since his eccentric manner sometimes drew more public attention than his artwork

In the Teatre-Museu Gala Dali wanted to create an atmosphere in which the visitor saw the museum, not as a storehouse for his works of art, but as an experience in which they could participate.

The museum is a combination of paintings and sculptures, and in some cases it is the room that has been made into a work of art itself. Everywhere you look there is some sort of visual stimulation.

Not all the artwork in the museum is Dali's own work, The Masterpieces room, for example, contains works from Dali's own collection. The likes of El Greco, Meissonier and Bouguereau can all be seen here along with some of his own work
