The rhinoceros has been called a surrealist animal due to its associations with the work of Eugène Ionesco, Salvador Dalí, and François-Xavier Lalanne. Exhibition curator Kathleen Morris explores the ways these artists used the captivating mammal in their work. She focuses particularly on François-Xavier Lalanne, who repeatedly employed the animal as a subject, including mounting an exhibition in 1980 called “Le Rhinocéros dans tous ses états”.
