On 19 March 2011, the Gala-Salvador Dalí Foundation inaugurated the exhibition "Dalí by Halsman" at the Gala Dalí Castle in the small village of Púbol, on the occasion of the seventieth anniversary of Dalí and Halsman first encounter in 1941, in the United States. "Dalí by Halsman" presented a selection of eighty-eight photographs of Salvador Dalí taken by Philippe Halsman (plus a gouache by Dalí painted on a photograph), for which Dalí's involvement was both physical and conceptual. The pictures shown in this exhibition were kept by Dalí throughout his life. They are reminiscences of his thirty-seven years collaboration, from 1941 to 1978, with another alchemist of the creative process. The exhibition at the Púbol castle-museum was curated by Montse Aguer, also author of the introduction to the catalogue. Irene Halsman, Oliver Rosenberg Halsman, Steve Bello, David G. Torres and Rosa Maria Maurell also contributed to its edition.
