Christine Argillet: Salvador Dali Art Collection On Display

Posted: Updated:

If you're a fan of Salvador Dali's work, we have such a treat for you this morning. Christine Argillet grew up around Dali, her father was his publisher and close friend.

Now she is sharing a very special collection with all of us.

Christine Argillet, is appearing in Los Angeles in support of an exhibition of the extraordinary collection DALI: THE ARGILLET COLLECTION October 19th & 20th.  This is an extraordinary presentation; the Collection has toured the United States in several major U.S. cities, among them Dallas, Washington, D.C., Chicago, New York and Houston.

Madame Argillet is both the Curator of this Dali Collection, as well as the daughter of the famed Pierre Argillet, Salvador Dali's publisher and confidante for over fifty years.  Her story is unparalled, and as compelling in terms of artistic knowledge and family history with regard to Dadaism....the Surrealists..and the stories behind the artists who shaped these most important Art Movements.

The Argillet Collection is unequivocally the most authenticated collection of Dali's work throughout his career.  The Pierre Argillet Collection demonstrates high standards of quality and the works have appeared in the world's most prestigious museums: Musee Boymans, Rotterdam;  Musee Pushkin, Moscow;  The Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Florida; Kunsthaus Zurich and Staatsgalarie, Stuttgart;  Isetan Museum of Art, Tokyo; Daimaru Art Museum, Osaka and Hiroshima Prefectural Museum of Art, Japan.  The collection's permanent home is at the Museum of Surrealism in Melun, France and the Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain.
