“This is the last event of the season for us and we couldn’t be happier to have the opportunity to partner with New River Fine Art,” VAS founder William Riddle enthused. “Our members and guests will enjoy viewing these original drawings, watercolors and many of Dali’s most beautiful suites. Special components of the evening will be a stimulating talk about the life and work of Dali by Larry White, New River Fine Art’s Director of Masterworks, as well as the flamenco guitar artistry of Greg Reiter for the complete VAS Art Salon experience of the great Spanish Surrealist Salvador Dali!”
guests for the evening will be members of The Opera Society and Friends of Museum of Art Fort Lauderdale.
“Dali was many things to many people: painter, etcher, sculptor, magician and aspiring alchemist,” gallery owner Lisa Burgess said. New River Fine Art was named manager of a compelling collection of original works and master prints by Salvador Dali from the estate of the late Baron Philippe du Noyer de Lescheraine. The works are a testament to two of the most significantcollaborations in 20th Century art. One being Dali’s friendship, trust and association with the art dealer, gallerist and publisher, Pierre Argillet, who inspired the creation of almost 200 editions and the establishment of the Museum of Surrealism in Melun France. The second being art collector, lifelong friend and publisher, Dr. Giuseppe Albaretto, whose famous collection of Dali paintings led to some of the most profoundly beautiful and important works of Salvador Dali’s œuvre.
