Dans le coeur of Montmartre, this musée is devoted entirely to the works of
Salvador Dali, especially to his sculptures & engravings.
Dali the Illustrator. Salvador Dalí illustrated some of the most beautiful literary, mythological and religious texts, paying homage to Dante, Rabelais, Cervantes, Lewis Carroll, Malraux, and many autre masterpieces of the literature. Dalí produced his first illustrations in Paris for the literary publications of the surrealists.
If "surrealist" means more realistic, super-, supra-, and hyper-realistic, the realist to the hilt, then Dali is a surrealist. Unlike his systematic detractors, Dali had already made un nom in Spain before arriving in Paris in 1929. Il even craved out his own niche with just four simple words : “Le Surréalisme, c’est moi!”
