About the Item

Lithograph in Colors on vélin d'Arches paper. Inscription: Signed in the plate and unnumbered, as issued. Good condition; unframed. Notes: From the folio, Les Chevaux de Dali. Published by Armand et Georges Israël, Paris; printed by L’Imprimerie nationale, Paris under the supervision of Société de la Propriété Artistique et des Dessins et Modules, the direction of Guy Beaussang and Pierre Croquet, and the production management of Dermont-Duval, Paris on June 10, 1983 in an edition limited to four thousand, nine hundred and eighty. The lithographs composing, Les Chevaux de Dali (The Horse of Salvador Dali) portfolio were created after 25 gouaches paintings that Salvador Dali painted during 1971. The horse theme was frequently used by Dali throughout his career. The horse is seen as a symbol of beauty and elegance as well as a symbol for strength and rawness. This portfolio is an homage to the animal itself and all the symbols it represents in modern culture, mythology and history of humanity and art. SALVADOR DALI (1904-1989) was a Spanish surrealist artist renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship, and the striking and bizarre images in his work. Born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain, Dalí received his formal education in fine arts in Madrid. Influenced by Impressionism and the Renaissance masters from a young age he became increasingly attracted to Cubism and avant-garde movements. In April 1926, Dalí made his first trip to Paris where he met Pablo Picasso, whom he revered. Picasso had already heard favorable reports about Dalí from Joan Miró, a fellow Catalan who later introduced him to many Surrealist friends. As he developed his own style over the next few years, Dalí made some works strongly influenced by Picasso and Miró. Dalí was also influenced by the work of Yves Tanguy, and he later allegedly told Tanguy's niece, "I pinched everything from your uncle Yves." He moved closer to Surrealism in the late 1920s and joined the Surrealist group in 1929, soon becoming one of its leading exponents. His best-known work, The Persistence of Memory, was completed in August 1931, and is one of the most famous Surrealist paintings. Dalí lived in France throughout the Spanish Civil War (1936 to 1939) before leaving for the United States in 1940 where he achieved commercial success. He returned to Spain in 1948 where he announced his return to the Catholic faith and developed his "nuclear mysticism" style, based on his interest in classicism, mysticism, and recent scientific developments. Dalí's artistic repertoire included painting, graphic arts, film, sculpture, design and photography, at times in collaboration with other artists. He also wrote fiction, poetry, autobiography, essays and criticism. Major themes in his work include dreams, the subconscious, sexuality, religion, science and his closest personal relationships. To the dismay of those who held his work in high regard, and to the irritation of his critics, his eccentric and ostentatious public behavior often drew more attention than his artwork. His life and work were an important influence on other Surrealists, pop art and contemporary artists such as Jeff Koons and Damien Hirst. There are two major museums devoted to Salvador Dalí's work: the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Salvador Dalí Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, U.S.
