About the project

Salvador Dalí. The Droll Dreams of Pantagruel

Organised by: Fundación Patio Herreriano in collaboration with Aurea Cultura i Art and Fundación Museo de Artes.
Curator: Gloria Patón.
General coordination: Interexpo.

Les songes drolatiques de Pantagruel by François Rabelais is a work that uses the grotesque and ridicule to reflect the vices and defects of the society and institutions of 16th-century France. In 1565, Richard Breton published an edition of this work in Paris, illustrating it with one hundred and twenty prints by François Desprez. Dalí copied twenty-five of those prints, further embellishing them with his own critical perception, in an effort to keep Rabelais’ transgressive and caricaturistic vision alive.
