This is Background Information
The Phyllis Lucas Gallery published a catalogue of works published by them. This catalogue contains a description of each work. Below is the information provided on “The Studio of Dali.”
This print is perhaps the most complex of the series. It is the by-product of the huge painting created for the Spanish Pavilion at the World’s fair. Dali kept this small gouache at his side while working on this canvas. He turned to it now and then for relaxation. The result is a highly complex, comprehensive work. It is packed with a variety of images. Additionally, it is an amalgam of many styles and techniques.
In the center is a trick perspective of the variety so characteristic of Albers. Through, over, or behind this is a second perspective. This is done in more shadowy, painterly tones. The doors of windows open into a series of lighted spaces.
The rest of the space is atmospherically suggested. This results from a spray of varying intensity and shade. Here Dali, the master of perspective, performs a lever-de-main of spacial construction. The print is populated by a throng of diverse and mysterious figures. These are a result of products and inhabitants of Dali’s Studio and his ever-productive mind. And in the center stands a mustachioed impresario – Dali, perhaps, or Don Quixote – marshaling the hoards. The catalogue does not list the type of paper. The catalogue lists the price as “price on request.”
