Numbered in pencil on the lower left. Edition 849 of 1700. Dry stamp signature on the lower right. Good conditions. The artwork is from the series Suite Papillon, printed by ateliers Matthieu et Draeger and published by J. Schneider in 1969. The suite was commissioned by SNCF to promote it. Ref. Michler-Lopsinger, Catalogue Raisonné pf Prints and Wood Engravings 1956-1980, p.129 no.1227. This colored print represents an abstract composition on the tone of red and yellow where the protagonists are butterflies. In the foreground a butterfly stands with tapered legs, an often recurrent element in his works. Rich in symbols and recurring images, mostly taken from everyday life or elaborated from childhood experiences, Dalí's works are a fantastic universe to discover!

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.”
