Our principal secured all known remaining paper from Dali publisher Levine & Levine, and selected twelve stunning Dali images in order to create "The Final Editions of Salvador Dali." These magnificent images have never before been published as hand-signed lithographs. Once these editions are sold out, they will never be available in this form again.  The Printing This magnificent collection of lithographs has been masterfully executed by one of Dali's original chromistes, Jean-Pierre Remond of Paris. The press that Mr. Remond used is one of only a few remaining old-style lithographic presses still in use in the United States. Master Dali himself printed many of his lithographic editions on this press. Type of Paper Our collection of authentic Dali prints are printed on Arches, Japon and Rives paper. All of the 22" x 30" images are available on both Arches and Japon paper. Arches paper is a high quality air-dried 100% cotton paper of warm white color. Rives, also cotton is more heavyweight. Japon is creamier in color, has silk-like fibers and has the lightness of a woodpulp paper. No two sheets of Japon paper look exactly the same. Collectors often prefer Japon paper although there is no actual superiority or durability when compared to the other two.The Lithographs This is a collection of twelve images, which are renderings of original Dali works of art from varying periods of his illustrious career. The original painting of the image Invisible Face (Ruin of the Head of Medusa on Landscape) was created for Edna Woolman Chase in 1941.Spectral Horse (Molecular Equestrian Figure) was created after a watercolor which dates from 1952. Disintegrating Mother and Child (Dynamiques Raphaelesque) is from an original drawing on paper also from that year. The Don Quixote Trilogy, The Warrior's Heard, The Story of Don Quixote and The Gift of Mandrino are thought to be autobiographical as they resemble an aging Dali. Authentication Each of these lithographs was signed, in pencil, by Salvador Dali. All signatures were verified by official Dali archivist, Albert Field, in 1999 prior to his death in 2003. Mr. Field took the extraordinary measure of counter-signing on the reverse of each archival sheet. Each fine art lithograph is shipped with an original certificate of authenticity from the publisher.

Salvador Dali is one of the most famous and prolific artists of the twentieth century, his fantastic imagery and flamboyant personality made him the best known artist of the Surrealist movement of the late 1920s and early 1930s. Born in Figueres, Spain in the northeastern province of Catalonia, Dali trained in the early 1920s at the Madrid Academy, where he perfected his realistic and meticulously detailed style.

Salvador Dali was one of the greatest Surrealist artists, using bizarre dream imagery to create unforgettable and unmistakable landscapes of his inner world. In 1934, the Surrealists censured Dalí. Toward the end of the decade he made several trips to Italy to study the art of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In 1940 Dali fled to the United States, where he worked on theatrical productions, wrote, illustrated books, and painted. A major retrospective of his work opened in 1941 at the Museum of Modern Art in New York and traveled throughout the United States.

Salvador Dali’s work can be found in the permanent collections of major museums internationally. Among them the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia in Madrid, The Museum of Modern Art in New York, The National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC, the Guggenheim Museums in New York and Venice, and the Tate Gallery in London. The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida is dedicated solely to Dalí’s work, and three museums in Spain are part of the artist’s legacy, the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres, the Gala Dali Castle Museum-House in Púbol and the Salvador Dalí Museum-House in Portlligat. The world’s largest Dali painting can be seen at Elena Bulatova Fine Art, Las Vegas.
Salvador Dalí was a leading proponent of Surrealism, the 20-century avant-garde movement that sought to release the creative potential of the unconscious through strange, dream-like imagery. “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision,” he said. Dalí is specially credited with the innovation of “paranoia-criticism,” a philosophy of art making he defined as “irrational understanding based on the interpretive-critical association of delirious phenomena.” In addition to meticulously painting fantastic compositions, such as The Accommodations of Desire (1929) and the melting clocks in his famed The Persistence of Memory (1931), Dalí was a prolific writer and early filmmaker, and cultivated an eccentric public persona with his flamboyant mustache, pet ocelot, and outlandish behavior and quips. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.”
