“Live” restoration of Dalí painting in Rotterdam

The conservation of Dalí’s Landscape with a Girl Skipping will be visible to the public

For a two-month period starting on 11 June, Rotterdam’s Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen will transform its Serra Gallery into a restoration studio. Visitors will be able to observe two specialists from the Redivivus workshop restore Salvador Dalí’s Landscape with a Girl Skipping, 1936, purchased by the museum in 1977. British surrealist art patron Edward James commissioned the triptych for his house in London where it sustained damage in an air raid during World War II.
