Salvador Dali (1904-1989)

Dali’s works have always been very popular and the existence of a large number of Museums all over the world devoted to his life and works have done much to enhance this popularity. We have in stock over 100 pieces including:

A small selection of Original drawings with certificates by Robert Descharnes, the acknowledged expert in the series.
A large group of Signed and numbered Original Etchings and Lithographs.
A quantity of bronze multiple sculptures.
A large wool tapestry.

Of particular interest are the following:

He bought the stock of Vollard on that dealers untimely death and proceeded to become one of the leading print dealers in Paris. The fact that our piece emanates from this source gives authenticity and prominence to it.

The classic view is across the Tagus river on which the famous ancient bridge can be seen.

Note: This was part of a suite of 3 etchings executed by J J J Rigal after drawings in coloured inks by Dali. The work depicts The Alhambra – a palace and fortress complex located in Granada, Andalusia, Spain. It was originally constructed as a fortress in 889 and was largely ignored until it’s ruins were rebuilt in the 11th century by the Berber King Badis be Habus. It was converted into a Royal Palace by Yusuf I, Sultan of Grenada in 1333. It is now one of Spain’s greatest tourist attractions and is a magnificent sight to see. Moorish poets describe it as “a pearl set in emeralds. It is a reflection of the culture of the last centuries of the Moorish rule ofAl Andalus. Our etching shows scenes from the Moorish past with turbaned Sultans and their harems being played to by guitarists. The suite consisted of:
Toledo – Prestel 94/Field 64-2 B
