Melissa Obeid of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) inspects 44 etchings titled 'Songs of Maldoror' at a preview at the NGV's Salvador Dalí exhibition, 'Liquid Desire', which brings together more than 200 works by Dalí in all media including painting, drawing, watercolour, etchings, sculpture, fashion, jewellery, cinema and photography, in Melbourne on June 11, 2009. The exhibition is drawn from the two largest collections of Salvador Dalí in the world, theFundació Gala-Salvador Dalí in Figueres, Spain and the Salvador Dalí Museum in St Petersburg, Florida, with the exhibition tracing the extraordinary innovation Dalí brought to his art at every stage of his remarkable career, from his earliest years as an exceptionally talented 14-year-old to the final majestic paintings created when the artist was in his seventies.
