The Dali Universe is advertised with the headline 'Enter in the mind of the genius'. You can view the Dali exhibition at County Hall in London. It is a wonderful exhibition, but unfortunately cameras and picture taking is forbidden. However, it is a once in a lifetime experience. The place has a unique atmosphere and the works of Dali are spellbinding. Along with Dali some of Picasso's works are also shown. When you enter the exhibition first you can see some pictures about Dali with different quotes from the great artist.
The works of Dali are categorized into different topics and under each painting there is an explanation of what the painting is about. For example there is a group of paintings about the famous novel Decameron, about Don Quijote, about erotica and the art of love, alchemy and mysticism.
For those who can afford it there is also a shop where they are selling some of the works of Dali.
