Salvador Dalí’s Surrealism of the Tiny

Meadows Museum - Dr. Bob and Jean Smith Auditorium

LECTURE - Salvador Dalí’s Surrealism of the Tiny

Roger Rothman, Samuel H. Kress Professor of Art History, Bucknell University
Roger Rothman’s lecture will explore Dalí’s fascination with all things tiny—both the literally tiny (ants, sewing needles, breadcrumbs, blackheads) as well as the metaphorically tiny (the trivial, the weak, the superficial, the anachronistic). Dalí has long been a controversial figure among scholars of modern art and Rothman’s lecture will examine the ways in which Dalí’s “tininess” courted such controversy.
