Madrid/Berlin/New York (bpb) The year 2004 is the DALI-YEAR. Museums and organizations celebrate internationally the 100th birthday of the artist. King Juan Carlos of Spain has proclaimed the Dali-Year. He and his wife Queen Sophia are the patrons of the Dali-Year and the celebrations in honor of the famous painter.
H.R.H. Prince Felipe is a great admirer of Dali. The photograph shows the Prince at the opening the exhibition of The Royal Dali Collection at Noervenich Castle in Germany. On this occasion, in the presence of Foreign Minister Hans-Dietrich Genscher the Prince became a Honorary member of the Order Alexander the Great for Art and Science. His great-grandparents, the late King Paul I of the Hellenes and Queen Frederica were in their time the patrons of this international order.
