“Christian Dior had a very strong influence in all categories of life,” says Jean-Luc Dufresne, the exhibition’s curator. “He was not only a leader of fashion in the ’40s and ’50s, but he was very influential in artistic life between the wars.” Dior started off as an art gallery owner, exhibiting the work of Neo-humanist and Surrealist painters such as Christian Bérard and Salvador Dalí.
