Salvador Dalí­
American Trotting Horses No. I

1971

US$8,500

About

American Trotting Horses No.1 is from the series “The World Of Currier And Ives as interpreted by Salvador Dali” published by Phyllis Lucas, New York. There are six original limited edition lithographs plus a title page “Dali’s Presentation” in the series. Each of the six lithographs has a miniature reproduction of the original Currier & Ives subject at the bottom of the image. American Trotting Horses No. 1 is a perfect example of Dali’s whimsical sense of the absurd. In this interpretation the great master replaces the trotting horses with one of his favorite subjects…Butterfly’s. Dali’s audience is treated to a delightful image of these magical winged creatures pulling what looks like a giant bicycle that can hardly avoid tickling anyone’s imagination. This original lithograph is in excellent condition and is signed in pencil by the artist on Japon paper and numbered XIX/L.Catalog raisonne Field #71-5 -E In 1965 Sidney and Phyllis Lucas became the first North American publishers of original signed limited edition lithographs by Salvador Dali. This collaboration by my parents continued until 1974 and The Lucille Lucas Gallery carries on the family tradition of offering these original works for sale. Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, Marquis of Dalí de Púbol (11 May 1904 – 23 January 1989), was a Spanish surrealist artist of Catalan ethnicity born in Figueres, Catalonia, Spain. One of the most famous artists that has ever lived Dali was a prolific creator working in many mediums such as painting, sculpture, ceramics, jewelry, writing , multi media , photography and film making to name a few. He had an eccentric personality and with his exceptional skill as a draftsman and his unusually imaginative view of the world Dali captured the attention of the public wherever his work was displayed. He created his own personal philosophy which he called paranoid critical a state in which one could simulate delusion while still maintaining one’s sanity which influenced the Surrealist movement. Dali’s world of tapping into the unconscious using symbolism filled with themes from religion, death, eroticism and decay has fascinated even those who were not frequent art lovers. Dali was a great showman and loved being adored by his public. But needless to say he had the talent to sustain his popularity even after his death.

About the Artist

Salvador Dalí­

Instantly recognizable by his waxed, upturned mustache, the flamboyant Salvador Dalí (1904–89) is one of modern art’s most distinctive figures. He is also one of the icons of the 20-century avant-garde Surrealist movement, whose dreamlike images, drawn from the depths of the unconscious, he deployed in paintings, sculptures, prints and fashion, as well as in film collaborations with Luis Buñuel and Alfred Hitchcock.Dalí was born in Figueres, Catalonia, and even as a youngster, displayed the sensitivity, sharp perception and vivid imagination that would later define his artworks. In these, he conjured childhood memories and employed religious symbols and Freudian imagery like staircases, keys and dripping candles to create unexpected, often shocking pieces.His use of hyperrealism in conveying Surrealist symbols and concepts that subvert accepted notions of reality is epitomized in what is perhaps his most recognizable painting, The Persistence of Memory (1931), in which he depicts the fluidity of time through melting clocks, their forms inspired by Camembert cheese melting in the sun. Dalí’s artistic genius, eccentric personality and eternal quest for fame made him a global celebrity. “Each morning when I awake, I experience again a supreme pleasure,” he once said. “That of being Salvador Dalí.”Find Salvador Dalí prints, sculptures and other works on 1stDibs.
