Join us as we hone in on Dalí’s life-long love of his native Costa Brava and its role in his work. Focusing on Flordalí, the artist’s rarely seen and little-known series of fanciful color prints of flowers (1968, 1969, 1981), Ockman explores the fantastical ways the series draws on his beloved landscape, Surrealism, the history of botanical illustrations, and his fascination with perspective and illusionism.
Carol Ockman is a writer, performer, curator and Robert Sterling Clark Professor of Art History Emerita Art History at Williams College (Williamstown, Mass.), with dual specialties in French art from the late eighteenth and nineteenth centuries and contemporary art and culture. She earned her doctorate and master’s degrees in Art History from Yale University and a bachelor’s degree in the same subject, as well as Italian, from Stanford University.
