Salvador Dalí’s fantastic and whimsical portfolio, ‘Imaginations and Objects of the Future’ (1975) includes 10 works on paper, presenting eye-catching selections of Dalí’s late work. The works show Dalí’s imaginative world as he entered a more religious and scientific phase of his life and art. After 1960, the artist became increasingly obsessed with mortality, nuclear warfare, technological advancement, and his own legacy as a creative genius. By focusing on his visions of the future and the afterlife, these works not only present central themes and motifs from Dalí’s career but also grants the viewer a glimpse into his personality.
