Title: Falsifiers
Inferno #29, The Divine Comedy

Original Woodblock Engraving on BFK Rives paper

Edition: 1081/4765
Condition: Excellent

"It held in its hand by the hair and to and fro'me let the dissevered head swing lantern-wise"

Published by Jean Estrade of Les Heures Claires, Paris. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Dali created 101 watercolors to represent scenes from Dante's travels through Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. The extravagantly surrealistic art works were not well received by the public, however, work began on the engraving of woodblocks, chosen as the best medium to represent the nuances of Dali's compositions into print format. The woodblocks were destroyed after printing. The Divine Comedy is held to be one of Dali's masterpieces and the artist himself considered this series to be among his most important works.

About the Artists

1904 Figueras, Spain

Salvador Dalí was one of the most well known surrealist artists of the twentieth century. Born in 1904 in Figueras, Catalonia in Spain. A great experimenter of the pictorial, theatrical and cinematographic fields. His work is easily distinguishable due to the individualistic style and provocative subject matter. Owing to the success of the surrealist movement, Dalí was able to use the Freudian theory of dream analysis in order to express the workings of the unconscious mind and associate words, images and thoughts to provoke a specific kind of emotion in the viewers. According to some critics, Dalí’s surrealist work reveals his darkest secrets and an alternative reality. Dalí was an expert draftsman and colorist which broadened his horizons as an artist. He used a variety of techniques and mediums to create his artwork. These techniques included, lithography (colour and print), sculpting, oil painting, fashion designing and writing. His most successful phase of surrealism was inspired by Pablo Picasso, whom he met in Paris. He was also inspired by an Italian painter called Giorgio de Chirico. Dalí’s work can be viewed as modern, innovative, deep, symbolic and sometimes grotesque. He used the themes of death, eroticism, childhood memories, dreams and portrayed them in a highly impressive, visually pleasing way that welcomed a great audience, making him relevant even today.
