A step inside the surrealistic face-like installation designed by Salvador Dalí (known as the “Rita Mae West Room”), at a preview of the largest retrospective of the eccentric Spanish artist’s work in decades, at Paris’ Pompidou Centre. The creation, from 1934, showcases Dalí’s characteristically audacious imagination, with elements of Pop art that were way ahead of their time. The exhibition — which includes many of Dalí’s signature masterpieces, including The Persistence of Memory (melted clocks and all) — is on view in the French capital until March 25; it moves to Madrid’s Reina Sofia Museum from April through September of next year.
