FUNDACIÓ GALA-SALVADOR DALÍ


The Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí was established at the behest of Salvador Dalí in 1983 with the mission to promote, encourage, divulge, protect and defend the artistic, cultural and intellectual oeuvre of the painter, his goods and rights throughout the world. It is a private charitable foundation with its own funding and independent administration assured by its Board of Directors. Dalí was its chairman and director until his death in 1989.

Since its creation, the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí has dedicated itself to making better known Salvador Dalí’s artistic and intellectual work.

Collection: The funds of the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí constitute the largest collection of works and objects created by the painter throughout his very long artistic life. They comprise more than 4,000 items and a wide variety of techniques, materials and supports (paintings, drawings, sculptures, engravings, installations, jewellery, holograms, photographs, stereoscopes). Since 1991, the Foundation has acquired more than 300 works by Salvador Dalí.

Archive and library : 10,200 volumes, 16,000 photographs, 700 manuscripts, as well as a very rich library of newspapers, correspondence and various forms of documentation either by the artist himself or relating to his life and his work.

These holdings have enabled the Foundation to bring very significant works by Salvador Dalí to many countries such as Japan, China, Australia, the United Arab Emirates, Turkey, Italy, etc., with retrospectives and exhibitions being organised there.

While the Spanish State is the universal heir of Dalí, the Foundation is the administrator of the intellectual, industrial, image and moral property rights of the artist and his works. The Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalí undertakes an international work of control, authorisation and licensing of rights, the commercial management of photographs and other legal action against fraud and any illegal activity in connection with these rights.
