Salvador Dalí coming to Recife in June

In June 2013, at Caixa Cultural Recife, they’ll be showcasing (free of charge) “A Divina Comédia de Dalí”, 100 watercolor paintings as well as some wood engravings from Salvador Dalí, inspired by Dante’s Divine Comedy. The series of illustrations is organized in three parts, representing Dante’s trip through hell, purgatory, and heaven. They were commissioned in 1957 by request of the Italian government to commemorate 700 years (in 1965) since the birth of Dante. The deal fell apart when Italians found out the project was given to a Spaniard, but Dalí did them anyways, on his own. “After Dalí did his part, the project was handed over to two wood engravers, who spent five years hand-carving 3,500 blocks used to create the reproductions of Dalí’s masterpiece.”

No word yet on if Lenine (currently being treated for hemorrhagic dengue fever) will make an appearance, given that he’s done a duet with her.
