  • The exhibition, arranged by Fundación Caja Segovia and Evolucionarte, is open until September 1 in the rooms of the Palacio del Torreón de Lozoya.
  • This surrealist piece follows the plot of Dante's poems and recreates great Renaissance and Baroque masters such as Raphael, Michellangelo, Velázquez and Zurbarán.

Bankia sponsors the exhibition 'The Divine Comedy' by Salvador Dalí, arranged by Fundación Caja Segovia and Evolucionarte, which can be visited until September 1 in the rooms of the Palacio del Torreón de Lozoya in Segovia.

The exhibition contains a hundred works by Salvador Dalí based on 'Divina Commedia', a poem by Dante Alighieri, written in several periods between 1307 and 1321. The exhibition of one of the top representatives of surrealism is organized in three major chapters, following the poems 'Inferno', 'Purgatorio' and 'Paradiso', in which the painter conveys the words of the poet.

Through the series, Dalí goes through Dante's piece and reinterprets it while imbuing it with the mysticism and dreams of surrealism. In addition, it is inspired in historic pieces, recreating great Renaissance and Baroque masters such as Raphael, Piero Della Francesca, Vermeer, Velázquez, Zurbarán and Michellangelo, but from the surrealist perspective of the paranoiac-critical method.

The series, exhibited at the Torreón de Lozoya and which can be visited from Tuesday to Friday from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and on Saturdays and holidays from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. and from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., belongs to the edition of the French company Les Heures Claires de Paris, published as a suite of 100 prints in 1960.

Before carrying out this series, Salvador Dalí's work in the field of illustration had important antecedents such as the 30 etchings of 'Los cantos de Maldoror', by the Count of Lautrémont, 1934, a cycle considered one of the highlights of his career.

Later, at the end of the fifties, he would go back to graphic works, creating 12 lithographs for 'Don Quijote de la Mancha', by Miguel de Cervantes (1957), and then he started 'The Divine Comedy'.
