The works exhibited have been loaned to Expo Dalí Cadaqués by the  ART FOUNDATION ANIMAS, founded in 1982.

The purpose of the Foundation is:

Obtaining, managing and making accessible arts in general and the work of the Salvador Dalí in particular, to a wide audience.  

The collection of the founders of the Foudation, Mr. Huibert de Jong and Mrs. Karin Verbeek, consists of original graphic work by Salvador Dalí, collected over more than 40 years. 

The collection was acquired through direct purchase of the artist and his representatives, such as editors and heirs. In addition through purchases via international auction houses.

The first exhibition of their collection took place in 1979 in the Hilton Hotel in Rotterdam.
