Gala Dali

One beautiful aspect of the Teatre-Museu in Figueres was Dali's evident total devotion to his wife Gala.
During his lifetime Dali created many pieces focusing around Gala, she was not only used as a muse, but was often the entire meaning and subject of the art in which she featured. Dali described Gala as his 'basket of bread', she was his very life, soul and artistic direction.

The works on display in the Treasure Room in particular represented a tender, delicate portrait of a wife utterly adored. These passionate pieces are some of the most beautiful, detailed masterpieces I have ever seen and perfectly reflect Dali's love for Gala, and his unabashed desire to 'devour' her in equal measure.
