Description of piece:
This spectacular original lithograph by Salvador Dalí is hand-signed by Dalí, in pencil, in a large signature directly within the artwork’s image area, lower left. Created by Dalí without borders, the work’s vibrantly-colored image extends to the full paper size. The edition number E.A. (Epreuve d’Artiste / Artist’s Proof) is hand-written in pencil, also within the artwork’s image area, lower right.

This work is replete with spellbinding details and masterful composition. A silvery pale moon is suspended in a darkened night-time sky. The visage of a celestial being looks down benignly from within floating clouds. A figure plummets downward from above, yet is held aloft. And the representational figures and mythos of the work are echoed in an exquisitely rendered line drawing. The details are breathtakingly beautiful.

The artwork has been freshly framed and comes ready for display in an archival, custom-made wood frame in lustrous gold; the artwork is floated within the mat to fully display the entire work. Framed size measures 37-5/8” in height x 29-1/8” width.

Catalogued in Dalí expert Albert Field's authoritative Official Catalog of The Graphic Works of Salvador Dalí, Reference 76-3, page 131, The Eternity of Love was created by Atelier Torrents in Barcelona, and published by Levine and Levine, New York.

The original plates for The Eternity of Love are presumed destroyed. Only 20 E.A.’s were created on Arches paper, of which this artwork is one. The total tirage (including all paper types and Epreuves d’Artiste) is 440. The work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.

Artist bio:
Salvador Dalí, born Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dalí i Domènech, (1904-1989) was a prominent artist born in Figueres, Spain, in the foothills of the Pyrenees, sixteen miles from the French border, in Catalonia. Dalí's expansive artistic repertoire included film, sculpture, and photography, in collaboration with a range of artists in a variety of media, and he is best known for his surrealist work, including his most well-known painting, The Persistence of Memory. Highly imaginative, Dalí attributed his "love of everything that is gilded and excessive, my passion for luxury and my love of oriental clothes" to an ancestry of descent from the medieval Moors. His individualistic nature and resistance to conformity made waves, including among his colleagues. In 1934, when Dalí was subjected to a "trial", in which he was formally expelled from the Surrealist group, Dalí retorted, "le Surrealisme c'est moi": "I myself am surrealism".
