Salvador Dali: A Look at Some of His Jewish-Themed Works and His Pro-Fascist History with Carol Salus, Professor Emerita, Kent State University
Dali is known for his works with their detailed, dream-like imagery. With the rise of anti-Semitism in the 1930s, the artist painted several works which show interest in Hitler. He was exiled from the Surrealists for his flirtation with Nazism. Decades later, he was selected by the State of Israel to create works for its twentieth anniversary. His works for this celebratory event are striking in their treatment of Biblical and contemporary history. Also, Dali and Freud admired one another and his meeting with this intellectual giant will also be discussed. This talk raises the question of how to evaluate his radiant Jewish-themed works and his feelings about Jews. Can we separate the man from the art?
