The Dalí Museum already has the largest collection of works by the Spanish surrealist Salvador Dalí. But it will be even larger, temporarily, when 12 more will be on loan from Madrid's Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía beginning Monday and continuing through March 31. They include still lifes; portraits of his wife and muse, Gala; later works with a mathematical theme; and the stereoscopic Las Meninas, one of Dalí's homages to another Spanish painter, the great 17th century artist Diego Velázquez. Shown here is one of two parts of the Dalí work which, when viewed together, produce a three-dimensional effect. The museum is at 1 Dalí Blvd., St. Petersburg. (727) 823-3767 or thedali.org.
