SALVADOR DALI "BRIDEGROOM LEAPS UPON THE MOUNTAINS" 1971
Salvador Dali (1904-1989) is Surrealism's most accomplished and iconic practitioner.
Prolific and endlessly inventive, Dali worked in almost every possible artistic medium; film, sculpture, photography, fashion and of course painting.
Since the beginning of his career Dali worked in the graphic arts. Some of his earliest etchings date to the 1930's.
This etching is one of 12 works created in 1971 as part of the series "The Song of Songs of King Solomon"
During the late 1960's and into the early 1970's Dali experimented with many different types of printmaking. Concurrently he was fascinated by Biblical Israel and the stories of the first testament.
In this work, Dali perfectly balances fantasy, stylization and expertise as a draftsman. The work, with its beautiful gold halo, is sensual, mystical and fantastical...like the finest examples of his work.
