Through The Surreal Window - Memorial Boat to Gala

Memorial boat to Gala

Salvador Dali, the father of surrealism, was both, emotionally disturbed and an artistic genius. The Dali Theatre-Museum is located at his home town of Figueres in Spain. Dalí personally conceptualized, designed, decorated, and painted it. This is the showcase his life's work. Looking through the window into the central courtyard, we witness the Memorial Boat, dedicated to his wife, Gala, who kept him from going overboard. When she died, so did he, so to speak. Here the boat has been lifted from the water andis dripping with his blue tears.
