Salvador Dalí’s Digital Catalogue Raisonné Completed After Seventeen Years

Salvador Dalí’s digital catalogue raisonné has been published, reports Alec Evans of the Art Newspaper. After seventeen years of research, the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation has made more than one thousand of the Surrealist artist’s works—with the exception of his drawings and watercolors—available for free on the French, Catalan, English, and Spanish versions of the foundation’s website. Created by the Centre for Dalinian Studies, it is the first online inventory of its kind.

The first part of the catalogue was launched in 2004—featuring works by Dalí from 1910 to 1929—to commemorate the artist’s one hundredth birthday. The final section of the five-part document was completed on December 4. It contains artworks made from 1965 to 1983. The volumes between the first and last sections contain work from 1930 to 1939, 1940 to 1951, and 1952 to 1964.

Now the foundation is working on organizing information about the artist’s sculptures and graphic works: areas of his oeuvre that have been polluted by forgeries. The first part of the catalogue raisonné for Dalí’s sculptures is scheduled for publication at the end of next year.
