Cleveland museum buys Dali painting

        CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Museum of Art has purchased the Salvador Dali painting “La Reve,” or “The Dream,” for an undisclosed price.

        The museum, which announced the purchase Thursday, didn't disclose the seller.

        The Plain Dealer reported Friday that it was sold by Daniel Filipacchi, chairman of Hachette Filipacchi magazines, which publishes Elle, Car & Driver, Premiere and Woman's Day.

        The museum said Thursday that the painting, selected by Dali in 1936 as one of three works to represent him in a London Surrealist exhibit, would go on display next Friday for six months.

        The painting then will undergo treatment in the museum's conservation studio.
