Surrealistic Bullfight: Burning Giraffe

Salvador Dali – Pierre Argillet Collection

Original Etching on Japon

Framed Size: 34″ x 28″

Edition: LXXXVIII/C

Information on Surrealistic Bullfight and the Pierre Argillet Collection

Surrealistic Bullfight: Burning Giraffe is an etching reworked in drypoint with hand-coloring and stencil. This image was published between 1966 and 1967. In addition, it is one of 100 hand-pulled prints on Japon paper.

Inspired by Picasso’s Tauromachie, Salvador Dali created the seven original etchings called The Surrealistic Bullfight. Furthermore, each of the seven illustrates a dark scene, featuring an animal in distress surrounded by ghoulish figures. To illustrate, a giraffe on fire and a sad clown-like matador both stare at the audience in Burning Giraffe. Perhaps, Dali’s Bullfight could illustrate his interpretation of the barbaric tradition. Nevertheless, the series is a Catalan theme, revisited by Picasso and further “Dali-inized” to be seen as a ghoulish, delirious mockery.

The Argillet Collection of Salvador Dali Drawings and Original Etchings is a collaboration between Surrealist Salvador Dali and art collector and publisher Pierre Argillet. Accordingly, this collection demonstrates the highest standards of quality, draftsmanship, and artisanship. As a result, this body of work is possibly the finest work produced by Dali during his career. Between 1934 and 1974, the two men created and published nearly 200 works. Ultimately, many of which have been displayed in some of the best known museums around the world.
