Salvador Dali
(1904 - 1989)

Spanish painter, graphic artist, filmmaker, writer.

A modern master of the surreal arts, Salvador Dali's works continually challenged convention by questioning the antithesis of surrealism: our normal sense of the "real."

Surrealism's objective was to make accessible to art the realms of the unconscious, irrational and imaginary.

In 1969 Dali created a series of 11 drypoint etchings with hand coloring entitled Les Hippies. The inspiration for this suite came from photographs taken in India by his longtime friend and publisher, Pierre Argillet. The etchings reveal the superb, spontaneous and consummate technique of the artist at the peak of his maturity. Outlandish, surrealist characters or situations appear in these 11 images through intricate whirls and golden halos. Each piece is hand signed on Japon paper and measures 26" x 20".
