The Palau Robert of Barcelona
presents the exhibition “Dalí de Cadaqués per Robert Descharnes”
in the space “The display cabinet of photographer” , until 28 of September
The exhibition shows some thirty of unusual images that they show the relation of the painter with the people of his immediate surroundings in his favourite scenes: Cadaqués and the region of the Empordà. Also an audio-visual assembly with all the 177 photographies appears that compose the collection.
As date, we must say that the relation of French photographer Descharnes with Dalí and Gala, began the winter of 1950 in Cadaqués. Since 1955 the photographer made long stays in this locality, which allowed him to accumulate an authentic photographic and filmed chronicle of the artist.
El Palau Robert is at Pg Gràcia, 107
, and you can visit it from 10:00 h until 19:00 h (except Sundays, 10:00 to 14.30 hs).
