Next to the "London Eye," this exhibition is devoted to the remarkable Spanish artist Salvador Dalí (1904-89) and is one of London's newest attractions. Featuring more than 500 works of art, including the Mae West Lips sofa, the exhibitions are divided into a trio of themed areas: Sensuality and Femininity, Religion and Mythology, and Dreams and Fantasy. Showcased are important Dalí sculptures, rare graphics, watercolors, furnishings and jewelry. You can feast on such surreal works as Dalí's monumental oil painting for the Hitchcock movie Spellbound, or view a series of original watercolors and collages, including the mystical Tarot Cards. You can also see the world's largest collection of rare Dalí graphics, illustrating themes from literature. See the "Westminster & Victoria Attractions" map.
