About

TECHNICAL INFORMATION: Salvador Dali The Earth Goddess (The Chef) 1980 Lithograph 29 x 21 1/2 in. Edition of 350 Pencil signed and numbered; certified authentic by Frank Hunter of the Salvador Dali archives in New York on verso. Condition: This work is in pristine condition. It has never been framed and always stored flat for its protection. Frame: Unframed. ABOUT THIS ARTIST: Salvador Dalí was one of the most popular artists of the 20th century. A famed Surrealist, he explained that all his best ideas came through his dreams. The Persistence of Memory (1931), arguably his most famous painting, shows the visual manifestation of psychoanalysis: fluid forms melt into a landscape of indeterminate time or place. Dalí’s outlandish persona granted him notoriety and often overshadowed his talent. He considered himself a genius, and thought Modern master Pablo Picasso to be his only equal. Born Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech on May 11, 1904 in Figueres, Spain, he displayed a great aptitude for the visual arts as a teenager. Three years after his first exhibition at 14, Dalí enrolled in Madrid’s Royal Academy of Fine Arts of San Fernando. Influenced by Old Masters Johannes Vermeer and Diego Velázquez, Dalí excelled in drawing and classical aspects of painting. In the late 1920s fellow Catalan Joan Miró introduced him to the Surrealists in France: Jean Arp, René Magritte, and Max Ernst. The inimitable Dalí died at the age of 84 in his native Spain.

About Salvador Dalí­ (Artist)

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.”
