St. Petersburg welcomes a landmark exhibition next month when The Dalí Museum brings together two of the biggest names in art in Picasso / Dalí, Dalí / Picasso. Opening Nov. 8, it’s billed as the first exhibition in the world that allows a direct comparison between two of the 20th century’s greatest artists. Most of the 75 works will be paintings, many from prestigious lenders, and some have never been seen in the United States. The show will examine rare new territory in the careers of Pablo Picasso and Salvador Dalí. Picasso (1881-1973) and Dalí (1904-1989) first met in 1926 in Paris when the latter was in his early 20s and star-struck by the famous, older artist Picasso. The show runs through Feb. 15 and then moves to Barcelona’s Museu Picasso for exhibition from March 19 until June 28.
