Extensive Private Collection of Salvador Dalí
The Monterey History & Art Association proudly presents one of the country’s largest private collection of Salvador Dalí, which was generously donated by the Piterman family. The collection features over 580 works including lithographs, etchings, sculptures and tapestries.
Our mission is to revive Dalí’s local history by showcasing some of his unique pieces and capturing the rich history that ties him to the Monterey region.
