Question
I was told that there are only 5 Dali masterpieces. Is this correct? If not, how many does he have and is there a web site I can view them on ?

Answer
Frankly, Lea, I have not heard that there were only 5 Dali masterpieces.  How do we know how many?  There is a current exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum.  You could visit their website or find out if there is a catalog, and which pieces are considered the most special.  There is the Dali Museum in Florida [my fave there is "Christopher Columbus Discovers America"--a large, complex, exciting work]; and his museum in Spain [I think in Seville].  His "Last Supper" is in D. C. [in the East Wing].  No site I know of announces itself as the place to view his masterpieces.  I would assert there are more than five.  Happy hunting.  Alan.

I can provide sound advice on buying, collecting & understanding fine art, especially original works by 20th century masters and leading contemporary artists. I can also explain techniques used to create original works and offer tips on how to tell whether or not a piece is an original work of art.

Experience

I have been active in the art world for twenty-seven years. I owned and operated four galleries and a wholesale showroom on both coasts. We specialized in original works by 20th century masters and emerging artists. I have been an art consultant, artist's representative, lecturer, auctioneer, and curator. I had a radio show for two years, "Today's Art World with Alan Klevit" [Washington, D.C.]; hosted two television shows on the arts for six years [Los Angeles Area]; have written for numerous local papers and international art magazines; and currently write a syndicated column, "The Art Beat." I conduct art auctions for charities throughout the United States, and am a frequent speaker/auctioneer on upscale cruise ships, and at civic organizations and local television shows.
