Surrealist Piano by Salvador Dalí

Surrealist Piano by Salvador Dalí

Salvador Dalí and the Marx Brothers were planning to do a film together. It would be titled “Surreal Women” and the argument focused on two women: a high-class snob and a woman daydreaming in the ethereal world of the genius of the Empordà. One of the drawings that Dalí made for the film can be seen from 20 August at Púbol Castle, and later will move to the Dalí Museum in Figueres.

“Surrealist Piano” is a drawing with charcoal and pastel to Salvador Dalí painted in 1937. The work was made during a trip to the United States. There, the artist met the Marx Brothers and decided to collaborate together in a film. This picture is a testimony that proves the link to the artist with Marx.

The picture is displayed from Thursday at the workshop of the artist, in Púbol. When the summer season finishes, it will be moved to the Museum in Figueres. The work adds to the over 300 pieces of Dalí Foundation has acquired since 1991.
