A flamboyant painter and sometimes writer, sculptor, and experimental filmmaker, Dalí (1904-1989) was the best known of the surrealist artists, using bizarre dream imagery to create unforgettable and unmistakable landscapes of his inner world. In 1929, Dalí met Gala Eluard, a staunch Surrealist who later became his wife. During the height of his fame, he was dismissed formally from the Surrealist group in 1934 for his fascination with Hitler. Responding, Dalí stated “Surrealism? I AM Surrealism!” During 1940 and 1941, he and Gala moved to America, and it was here that Dalí began concentrating on more accepted themes. In the United States he engaged in an extensive amount of self-promotion and absurd activities. Most humorously, he walked an anteater in public several times and allegedly threw it into silent film actress Lillian Gish’s lap on The Dick Cavett Show. Facsimile signature at right of image. Slightly creased at lower margin, touching the “li” of signature. Fine condition. – Please contact us if you have any questions or require additional information. HFSID 251472
