Mme Argillet Accompanies Dali Collection to PBG

Reprinted from Palm Beach Live Work Play

It is extremely important to know that Madame Christine Argillet, who was Salvador Dali’s friend, confidante, and curator of “Dali: The Argillet Collection” will accompany a rare Dali Collection on a limited tour, which will make a stop in Palm Beach Gardens at Onessimo on PGA Boulevard. Details are below, this is a rare opportunity to see some of Dali’s works that were not as publicized as some of his other works of art. That Mme Argillet will be here is significant and rare, because this is her Father’s (Pierre Argillet’s) collection. Just the pictures of them together speaks volumes. Salvador Dali and Pierre Argillet were kindred spirits in many ways, and found much common ground and friendship, upon which much happened and much was inspired. I look forward to speaking with Madame Christine Argillet. Tim Byrd “The Byrdman”

Ms. Christine Argillet, will be appearing in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida in support of an exhibition of the extraordinary collection DALI: THE ARGILLET COLLECTION this coming January of 2017. This is an extraordinary, museum quality presentation; the Collection has toured in galleries across the globe, and presented in many US cities; among them Washington, D.C., Chicago, NewYork, Dallas, Los Angeles, Houston, Los Angeles and San Diego.

Madame Argillet is both the Curator of this Dali Collection, as well as the daughter of the famed Pierre Argillet, Salvador Dali’s publisher and confidante for over fifty years. Her story is unparalleled, and as compelling as any I have encountered in terms of artistic knowledge and family history with regard to Dadaism….the Surrealists..and the stories behind the artists who shaped these most important Art Movements.

The Argillet Collection is unequivocally the most authenticated collection of Dali’s work throughout his career. The Pierre Argillet Collection demonstrates high standards of quality and the works have appeared in the world’s most prestigious museums: Musee Boymans, Rotterdam; Musee Pushkin, Moscow; The Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, Florida; Kunsthaus Zurich and Staatsgalarie, Stuttgart; Isetan Museum of Art, Tokyo; Daimaru Art Museum, Osaka and Hiroshima Prefectural Museum of Art, Japan. The collection’s permanent home is at the Museum of Surrealism in Melun, France and the Dali Museum in Figueres, Spain.

Dali’s open-mindedness and innate ability to embrace a plethora of topics and themes can also be seen in his etchings and drawings, which address different topics, from religion to eroticism. Pierre Argillet’s daughter, Christine Argillet, spent much of her childhood in the presence of Salvador Dali, and experienced his receptivity and broad-mindedness first-hand. Her presence in Onessimo Fine Art the opening week of this exhibition will provide invaluable insights into the collaboration between her father and Dali, and works they produced together.

Madame Argillet describes this exhibition as “A tribute to the work of my father, Pierre Argillet, as an extraordinary publisher of the Dada and Surrealist group. This collection reflects a constant endeavor and a close collaboration with the artists of these two movements, especially Salvador Dali. My goal is to have this collection presented in the finest museums and galleries in the world”.
