Elliott H. King
Art Historian & Salvador DalĂ­ Scholar



'a terrific, even shattering show'
Roberta Smith in The New York Times on Dali: The Late Work'

'The exhibition and companion volume explicitly seek to undertake a re-evaluation of the late Dali and thus, by implication, draw a new appreciation for what he was then striving to express in his art. But they do so with complete intellectual honesty, making no attempt to hide or explain away that which might be deemed unseemly, bizarre, contradictory, inauthentic or mediocre of this second Dali. All of this is accomplished in the long, well-documented introductory essay by Elliott King...'
Franco Mormando in America: The National Catholic Weekly on Dali: The Late Work'

'The exhibition surprises us productively, revealing an artist who ought to disturb us in many useful ways.'
