GravitasMag.com | 77 The Dali Picasso Connection In the spring of 1926, Dali visited Picasso's studio on his first trip to Paris and saw the works Picasso was preparing for his summer exhibition at Paul Rosenberg. After returning to Spain, Dali set to work on an important group of paintings which reflected this artistic encounter and marked a transition to artistic maturity. In 1929, both Dali and Picasso participated in the project of the Surrealists to bring the disruptive and creative power of dream images into their works. In 1936, Dali and Picasso responded simultaneously to the horrors of civil war in Spain with powerful works dramatizing the anguish of human conflict. In the 1940s, Dali and Picasso began to define diverging political affinities, one to the left and one to the right. eir art converged in an engagement with the great art of the past as they dealt with the history of art's grandest aspirations and their own yearning for artistic sovereignty in this era.
