“The atomic explosion of August 6, 1945, shook me seismically. Thenceforth, the atom was my favourite food for thought. Many of the landscapes painted in this period express the great fear inspired in me by the announcement of that explosion.”
-Salvador Dalí

Atomic Leda is one of the paintings produced by Dalí under this new sign. Dalí was living with Gala at the time in the USA, where they had arrived in 1940 after fleeing from the Second World War.

Atomic Leda displays the artist’s concerns for the events of his era and, at the same time, condenses many of his particular interests: science, landscape, mythology and Gala, his partner, inspiration and muse.

In the whole of his oeuvre, this painting represents the transition from his “atomic age” to his “nuclear mysticism period”. Dalí never lets go of Atomic Leda and in the 1970s decides to hang it in a pre-eminent place in his Theatre-Museum in Figueres. It can now be exceptionally seen in CaixaForum Sevilla thanks to the collaboration between ”la Caixa” Foundation and Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation to make Atomic Dalí possible in order to provide in-depth knowledge about one of Salvador Dalí’s masterworks.

Atomic Dalí. Dates: 24 October 2018 to 3 February 2019. Place: CaixaForum Sevilla (Centro Comercial Torre Sevilla c/ López Pintado, s/n).
