Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was seen as one of the leading artists of the 20th Century, and his Surrealist-styled work was influential to many. Various Japanese avant-garde artists drew inspiration from Dali's works, and a special exhibition at Fukushima's Morohashi Museum of Modern Art will explore this connection.

A number of Dali's works from the museum's collection will be displayed, alongside pieces from Japanese avant-garde painters including Ichiro Fukuzawa, Hamao Hamada, and Iwami Furusawa. The impact that Dali had on these individuals is evident when exploring their art.

Adult admission to the event is priced at 1300 yen, and no advance reservations are required.
