Salvador Dali
(1904 - 1989)

In 1972 Dali created the imaginative Surrealistic Florals, a 15 piece portfolio of hand-signed and numbered lithographs with original etching. A longtime collector of scientific books and rare illustrations from cabinets of curiosities, Dali recreates some of his favorite flowers by uniting them with familiar symbols seen throughout much of his work. Dali's clever play-on-words is seen in this suite with two lips growing from tulips and eyes bulging from an iris blossom.
