Salvador Dali Surrealist Leda Armchair Sculpture Black Label Limited Edition

$39,878.08per item
$49,847.60per item20% Off


Leda armchair designed by Dali manufactured by BD. All pieces of ironwork in this collection are made of brass. The Black Label Leda collection has an artisanal application of a special patina (metal dissolved in nitric acid) which is applied to a lightly heated surface accomplished with a gas blow torch. The reaction caused results in an irregular dark finish. The black label collection came to market in a limited edition of 105 pieces (the age of Dali in 2009). Measures: 47 x 60 x 92 H. cm Year of design: 1935-1937 Manufactured Upon Request. Production delay: 8-9 Weeks Taken from “Femme á la téte rose” 1935 (Woman with a head of roses). It was sufficient for this sculpture to be made as a three dimensional piece, remaining faithful to every detail in Dalí’s painting. Dalí affirmed: “A chair can be used even to sit on, but only on one condition: That we sit uncomfortably.” We can sit on the Leda, but due to the fact that it only has three legs and that the chair is heavy, it being made of solid brass, is more a work of art than a functional piece of furniture.

About the Artist

Salvador Dalí­

Instantly recognizable by his waxed, upturned mustache, the flamboyant Salvador Dalí (1904–89) is one of modern art’s most distinctive figures. He is also one of the icons of the 20-century avant-garde Surrealist movement, whose dreamlike images, drawn from the depths of the unconscious, he deployed in paintings, sculptures, prints and fashion, as well as in film collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock. Dalí was born in Figueres, Catalonia, and even as a youngster, displayed the sensitivity, sharp perception and vivid imagination that would later define his artworks. In these, he conjured childhood memories and employed religious symbols and Freudian imagery like staircases, keys and dripping candles to create unexpected, often shocking pieces. His use of hyperrealism in conveying Surrealist symbols and concepts that subvert accepted notions of reality is epitomized in what is perhaps his most recognizable painting, The Persistence of Memory (1931), in which he depicts the fluidity of time through melting clocks, their forms inspired by Camembert cheese melting in the sun. Dalí’s artistic genius, eccentric personality and eternal quest for fame made him a global celebrity. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.” Find Salvador Dalí prints, sculptures and other works on 1stDibs.
