Berlin (bpb) Salvador Dalí and his perfumes are for first time on display in a museum exhibition in May, 2004. The European Art Foundation has organized the presentation in the Museum of European Art at Noervenich Castle in Germany.
For the first time in art history, a catalogue is published with the title: "The Divine Fragrances" (Die Göttlichen Düfte--Les Fragrances Divines). The research work was done by the Dalí Expert Detlef Lehmann, Curator of the Dalí-Archives, EKS. The English translation is by Christopher Scott Zavrel (USA).
Displayed are fascinating perfume bottles--such as bottles in the shape of the lips, in different variations and colors. More details and order for the extraordinary catalogue: firstname.lastname@example.org
