This work was purchased through a regional auction house. We are not experts in works by Dali, and it has not been taken for authentication. Dali was noted to have been one of the most forged artists. However, he often signed blank canvases or authenticated others work as his. It seems many believe he would have probably enjoyed the mystery and proliferation of his work because of his own quirkiness and love of money. We are selling this only as a beautiful piece of art with no implied warranties or guaranties as to authenticity. Because of the uncertainty of his own hand in the work, we will allow for a return if not pleased for any reason.

Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a famed Catalonian painter. He is a distinctive figure of 20th century art and an icon of the avant-garde Surrealist movement. His images have a dream-like quality combining imagination, symbolism, and a unique sharp perspective. He worked in several mediums including paintings, sculptures, prints, fashion, writing, and film.
Dali said of his work that he would employ the usual paralyzing tricks of eye-fooling and painted with the most imperialist fury of precision to “to systematize confusion and thus to help discredit completely the world of reality.” Dali often performed his “paranoiac-critical method from self-administered psychotic hallucinations to create his artwork and noted “the difference between a madman and me, is that I am not mad.”
