Lithograph by the Surrealist master Salvador Dali.

A 1930 work by the Spanish artist, in which the Surrealist style and metaphysical setting characterise the artist's early years.

The work has all the characteristics of Dali's surrealist imagery; two anthropomorphic figures seem to merge into each other in a grasp, a sphere is placed at the bottom left of the composition and a shadow of a figure not present in the scene advances from the bottom right-hand corner, creating a suspended and mysterious atmosphere at the same time. 

The work is hand-signed in the lower right-hand corner and numbered 175/300 in the lower left-hand corner.

1904 Figueras, Spain

Salvador Dalí was born in 1904, in Figueras, Catalonia. He was one of the most well-known surrealist artists of the twentieth century, and he was a great experimenter of the pictorial, theatrical and cinematographic fields. His style is original and it is distinguishable due to the provocative subject matter. He was able to integrate the Freudian theory of dream analysis in his works, expressing the workings of the unconscious mind and associate words, images and thoughts to provoke a specific kind of emotion in the viewers, revealing also the artist’s darkest secrets and an alternative reality. Thanks to his expertise as a draftsman and a colorist, he used a variety of techniques and mediums to create his artwork, such as lithography, sculpting, oil painting, fashion designing and writing.                                                    Dalí’s work was inspired by Pablo Picasso, whom he met in Paris, and by an Italian painter, called Giorgio de Chirico. Since he used the themes of death, eroticism, childhood memories, dreams, his artworks can be viewed as modern, innovative, deep, symbolic and sometimes grotesque.
