Salvador Dali Les Metamorphoses Erotiques- 1969

The Salvador Dali Les Metamorphoses Erotiques book was printed in 1969.  The first 150 books contain an etching.  The etching is titled “La Chimere.”  Dali signed the etching.  The etching is 4″ in diameter.  The sheet size is x ” .  The paper is Rives.  Edita published the book.  Rigal did the etching. All of the books contain a miriade of prints, some of which are shown below.  We have both the version with the etching #78, and the version without the etching, #815.

The images from Dali Les Metamorphoses Erotiques are a little hard to explain. I am thinking about it. A few of the prints in the book are shown below. There are many others.  The books are authentic.

This is background information.

Dalí was known for his role in Surrealism. He was also a seminal example of celebrity showmanship and the cult of personality, 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.
