Salvadore Dali Invitation
I once had the pleasure of seeing Salvadore Dali’s jewelry designs in person, when a student at Virginia Commonwealth University. The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts had his pieces on display. This was a rare occasion, as his jewelry collection is now permanently housed at the Dalí Museum in the small coastal town of Figueres, just north of Barcelona, Spain. For this invitation, a photograph of Dali was sketched as a line drawing. On the inside, the pieces are arranged to create faces with a plane running through the three inside panels. The effect is slightly surrealistic.
