Salvador Dali - Hippies
Spanish (1904 – 1989)
Salvador Dali Hippies – 1969
The Salvador Dali Hippies portfolio consists of 11 or 12 drypoint etchings. Some of the etchings have hand coloring. Some of the etchings contain gold dust. The suite with 12 etchings has a duplicate etching of “The Corridor of Katmandu.” The distinction is that one etching is completely black and white and one is sepia. Dali signed each etching in the lower right. Each etching contains a number designation in the lower left. I use the Field designations for each etching. The edition of 145 is on Arches script. This set is Available.
This is background information.
Dalí was known for his role in Surrealism. He was also a seminal example of celebrity showmanship. Subsequently the cult of personality is a phenomenon that dominates popular culture today. Dali was always a colorful and flamboyant presence. This is reflected by his signature cape, wide-eyed expression and trademark upturned waxed mustache. Dalí was a master of self-promotion and spectacle. Click on this link for additional background information on Salvador Dali.
