Salvador Dali, is unanimously recognized as the greatest surrealist artist, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and definitively the most charismatic. The artwork on sale is part of a collection of rarities which are not very often or even never exhibited. The collection consists mainly of paintings, sketches, studies, and lesser-known drawings from many periods of the most prolific artist of our time.
All these works are not always the most ‘beautiful’ in the aesthetic sense of the word, even though beauty is permanent in Dali’s work. They are all interesting, very exciting, each one is representing a part of the journey of this artist who has an overflowing, abundant, delusional imagination. These are all testimonies of the history of this genuine creative genius.
To be discovered. With rare exceptions, I only own one copy of each.
