Surrealistic Crutches

Salvador Dali

Memories of Surrealism Suite of 12

Medium: Original Lithograph with Etching on Paper

Price: $5,000.00

Paper Size: 21” x 30”
Image Size: 16.25” x 20.75”

Edition: #A 155/175

Information About the Series

Published in 1971 by Transworld Art, the print portfolio, Memories of Surrealism, is a fresh and lively distillation of the art of Salvador Dali. Working on an intimate scale, Dali here revisits the major themes and motifs of his art in a remarkably restrained, even analytical mood, and the happy result is a series of sketchbook-style studies that, even after the passage of forty-plus years, look like they could have been produced yesterday.

My understanding is that each of the twelve color prints in the portfolio is an etching on a photolithograph of an original mixed-media work that Dali created with gouache and collage on paper. The prints were all signed by Dali in pencil and were issued unbound in a presentation case along with some descriptive text plates, and all etching plates and lithographic stones were destroyed before the portfolio was released to impose a hard limit on the edition.
