Join curators Caitlin Haskell and Jennifer Cohen and paintings conservators Allison Langley and Katrina Rush for an in-depth discussion about a major discovery made while conducting research for Salvador Dalí: The Image Disappears. Learn how they linked the iconic Art Institute painting formerly known as Visions of Eternity (1936) to a mural from Dalí’s salacious funhouse pavilion for the 1939 New York World’s Fair, and see this icon of Surrealism in a new light.
