Salvador Dalí’s Trilogy of the desert: Mirage 1946
We are delighted to announce that Salvador Dalí’s Trilogy of the desert: Mirage 1946 is now formally part of the NGV Collection. As the first painting by Dalí to enter an Australian museum collection, we are immensely grateful to our supporters for their contribution towards acquiring this significant painting.
Trilogy of the desert: Mirage is now on display on level two of NGV International in the Surrealist Gallery. It joins the ranks of other key works in the NGV Collection such as Pablo Picasso’s Weeping Woman 1937 and Giambattista Tiepolo’s The Banquet of Cleopatra 1743–1744. Dalí’s painting also establishes a crucial link in the Gallery’s holdings of international and Australian Surrealist art and we are pleased to share this important work with millions of visitors to the NGV.
As the NGV’s largest and most ambitious Annual Appeal to date, this is an achievement made possible only through the generosity of supporters gratefully acknowledged below.
