Genius or clown? Paris hosts first Salvador Dali retrospective since his death

We head to the largest exhibition of Salvador Dali’s works since his 1979 Paris retrospective - the most viewed show in the Pompidou Centre's history.

Finally, the dresses that hid Frida Kahlo's pain come to light decades later... in a new exhibition.
