Dalí·Joies, 1996


Permanent exhibition at the Teatro-Museo Dalí. Figueres, Girona

Oscar Tusquets Blanca with Carles Vinardell

Dalí·Joies exhibits the collection of thirty-seven items of jewellery in gold and precious stones and twenty-seven drawings and paintings for the designs which Dalí created between 1941 and 1970.

    This permanent exhibition has been created as an annex to the Teatre-Museu Dalí. In an almost totally dark space, in high-security glass showcases with two transparent faces, the jewellery sparkles by the light of the fibre-optic illumination of the tone best suited to the precious stones in each item. The corresponding watercolour design is shown alongside each piece.
