In the heart of Bruges is an unexpected museum, the Museum Gallery XPO, dedicated to works by Surrealist artist Salvador Dali. In Museum Gallery XPO you can find Dali’s illustrations for Alice and Wonderland and The Old Man and the Sea. With his whimsical, yet sexual, nature of his works, Dali is one of the most celebrated artists from the Surrealist movement.  Dali knew that he was something special. He once said ““I am an average painter. If I were to compare myself with Vermeer or Velasquez, I would have to describe myself as a real artistic disaster. If I compare myself with my contemporaries, than I am simply the best.” You can determine if you think he is “simply the best.”
