Salvador Dalí­
Faust "Woman with Clown"

1968

US$7,425

About

60/150 Hand colored etching COA: This work comes with a Certificate of Authenticity from West Chelsea Contemporary. Additional Info: Using rubies and diamonds as engraving tools, Dali illustrated La Nuit de Walpurgis of Faust (21 pieces, 1968) resulting in an incomparable delicacy to the design. In the “Walpurgis Night” the various scenes appear within a magic circle, in a chiaroscuro whose acme is most likely the stunning portrait of “Faust Lisant”, evocative of Rembrandt’s etchings. Alchemical signs, formed by Dali’s inverted signature, add an esoteric dimension to this exceptional interpretation of Goethe’s “Faust”.

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.
