Melissa Obeid of the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) inspects 44 etchings titled 'Songs of Maldoror' at a preview at the NGV's Salvador DalĂ­ exhibition, 'Liquid Desire', which brings together more than 200 works by DalĂ­ 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 DalĂ­ in the world, theFundaciĂł Gala-Salvador DalĂ­ in Figueres, Spain and the Salvador DalĂ­ Museum in St Petersburg, Florida, with the exhibition tracing the extraordinary innovation DalĂ­ 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.
