The High is the sole venue for Dalí: The Late Work, the first exhibition to focus specifically on Salvador Dalí's art after 1940. The exhibition features 115 works including 40 paintings and a related group of drawings, prints and other Dalí ephemera. "Dalí: The Late Work" reevaluates the last half of Dalí's career, beginning in the late 1930s with the transition from his well-known surrealist canvases to his self-reinvention as an artist in 1941, when he embraced Catholicism and declared himself a classicist. The exhibition also explores Dalí's relevance to contemporary art by exploring his enduring fascination with science, optical effects and illusionism, and his surprising connections to artists of the 1960s and 1970s such as Andy Warhol, Roy Lichtenstein and Willem de Kooning. The exhibition is on view through January 9, 2011.

The exhibition will also include paintings by Tintoretto, Veronese and Lotto from the collection of the National Galleries. This exhibition launches a new collaboration between the High and NGS, with additional exhibitions currently under development.
