In the years after World War II artist’s masterpieces were often transformed into commercial fabrics, either sold by the metre – art by the yard – or turned into garments and soft furnishings. They appeared  as Salvador Dali ties,  Joan Miró dresses, and many other objects which are displayed in the exhibit.Screen Shot 2014-05-02 at 16.31.51
