Provenance / HistoryJohn Peter Moore, a former British Army captain, first met Dalí in 1956 when he was working with film producer and director Alexander Korda in Rome, and arranged for him to be paid in cash for a painting of Laurence Olivier as Richard III. The two became friends. In 1960, Dalí employed Moore as his personal secretary and from 1965 as his business manager. Together with Dalí's wife Gala, they traveled regularly to New York for the winter, Paris for the spring and Cadaqués in northern Spain for the summer. Moore made money for Dalí through his merchandising schemes. "I was Goldfinger to Dalí," Moore said later. "I suggested he make graphics, lithographs, bed sheets, shoes, socks, ties anything saleable.” In 2003, aged 85 and with his reputation under fire, Moore closed the museum. He had no children and has decided to sell. Most works were sold at a huge auction in Paris organised by Artcuriel. Items coming from this source have, therefore, a direct link to Dali himself. Most if not all the works were stamped with the Museum stamp which can be seen on our work.

Salvador Dali - Spain
Art Brokerage: Salvador Dali Spanish Artist: Salvador Dalí was a renowned Spanish Surrealist artist known for his enigmatic paintings of dreamscapes and religious themes. The Persistence of Memory (1931), arguably his best known work, visually manifests the strangeness of time by depicting clocks melting in an idyllic landscape. “One day it will have to be officially admitted that what we have christened reality is an even greater illusion than the world of dreams,” he once reflected. Born Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech on May 11, 1904 in Figueres, Spain, he displayed a great aptitude for the visual arts as a teenager. Three years after his first exhibition at the age of 14, he enrolled at the Academia de San Fernando in Madrid. At school, he emulated many contemporary styles but also the works of Johannes Vermeer and Diego Velázquez. During his visits to Paris in the late 1920s, he was introduced to the Surrealist movement by René Magritte and Joan Miró. Though the concept of Surrealism was new to him, Dalí was already well versed in the psychoanalytic theories of Sigmund Freud. Dabbling in various projects throughout his long career, in 1942 he published the book The Secret Life of Salvador Dalí. A mixture of self-aggrandizing confessions and sadistic fantasies about his childhood, the book further outlined the artist’s outlandish persona. However, his pronounced sense of ego was not always unfounded, as evinced in his works inclusion in Alfred Hitchcock’s famous dream sequence from the film Spellbound (1945). Dalí died on January 23, 1989 in his hometown of Figueres, Spain. Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Tate Modern in London, the Reina Sofia National Museum in Madrid, and the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, among others.
