Description:

To many Salvador Dali remains a rather enigmatic man, and to others, somewhat overly commercial in his artwork. He was always quite a savvy self-promoter, so many will not be surprised to learn that he created the Gala-Salvador Foundation in 1983 (six years before his death) in order "to promote, boost, divulge, lend prestige to, protect and defend in Spain and in any other country the artistic, cultural and intellectual oeuvre of the painter" and so on. This website provides information about the Foundation, the three museums it manages, and the outreach programs it performs, including the conservation department and study center. Visitors to the site can take interactive tours of the three museums here, and also learn about the general operations of each place. Of course, visitors will not be surprised to learn that in the "Collection" area of the site that they may also view selected works by Dali along with taking a look at a "Work of the Month" here as well.
