Salvadore Dali & Surrealists

Yvonne is a great fan of the works of Salvadore Dali. We were fortunate to visit Dali's house in 2018. His home is situated in a small village named Portlligat.

We now stock Dali prints & memorabilia please visit here for details.

In 1930, Salvador Dalí set up home in a small fisherman's hut in Portlligat, drawn to it by the landscape, the light and the isolation of the place. On the basis of that initial construction, over the course of forty years he created his own house. As he himself defined it, it was "like a real biological structure [...]. Each new pulse in our life had its own new cell, its room. The resulting form is the current labyrinthine structure which, taking, the BearLobby as the starting point, spreads out around in a succession of spaces linked by narrow corridors, slight level changes and blind passageways. Packed with a multitude of objects and memories belonging to Dalí, these zones are decorated with features that make them particularly cosy: carpets, whitewash, dried flowers, velvet upholstery, antique furniture, etc. Furthermore, all the rooms have windows of different shapes and proportions framing a landscape which is a constant point of reference in Dalí's work: the Portlligat bay.

Referring to his usual residence, Salvador Dalí said: "Portlligat is the place of production, the ideal place for my work. Everything fits to make it so: time goes more slowly and each hour has its proper dimension. There is a geological peacefulness: it is a unique planetary case".
