Who else but Dali would depict a rhinoceros (average weight 3,300 lbs.) towering over a landscape, supported on skyscraper-tall flamingo legs, and carrying scantily clad (make that unclad) cargo! Forget about surrealist symbolism for now. Put

Carmen Salvador Dali, 1970 Suite of lithographs (pictured above: 3 of 25 works from the suite)   Salvador Dali, though he sometimes talked about having Arabic roots, was in fact very proudly Spanish, and some of his greatest works seem to be those that reflect the apotheosis of Spanish heritage, custom, and heart.

Comments Off on Bust of John Fitzgerald Kennedy, sculpture by Salvador Dali

Bust of John Fitzgerald Kennedy   Original sculpture Salvador Dali 1965   Two iconic 20th century heroes share an unlikely nexus in this head-turning original sculpture: the decorated but ill-fated U.S. President, John F. Kennedy, and the Master of Surrealism, Salvador Dali.   Skillfully fashioned from Dali’s own hands – not merely a three-dimensional object based on a drawn design by the artist – this intriguing bronze is covered with….paper clips! How utterly Daliesque that

Comments Off on Self-Portrait Sun Dial, 1966– Salvador Dali

Self-Portrait Sun Dial Lithograph 1966 By Paul Chimera Dali Historian (Mr. Chimera worked directly with Dali Museum founder Reynolds Morse, as the publicity director of the original Dali Museum when it was located in Beachwood, Ohio) It was completely natural and understandable that Salvador Dali would be interested in the subject of the ancient phenomenon of the sun dial. Ok, it’s coincidence (right?) that “dial” is an anagram of “Dali!” But, of course, time pieces

Leda Atomica   Etching, 1947       Salvador Dali’s talents as a master draftsman were abundantly evident, no matter what medium he chose to work in. Best known as a Surrealist painter – in addition to his fame as a flamboyant showman – Dali was also wonderfully prolific and articulate as a writer and, among other creative outlets, an etcher and lithographer as well. Some of his finest work was done in these graphic
