Salvador Dalí Biography

The prints of Salvador Dalí are rooted in a rich past. In actuality, Dalí’s prints have a history that dates back to his early years of art school.

A large number of them are hand-signed, limited-edition editions. Some are regarded as some of the best prints created in the 20th century. Dalí had the ability to experiment with a wide range of subjects through his print work, including etchings, engravings, mixed media, lithographs, and photo-litho. Dalí would produce beautiful suites or single prints. These suites frequently feature a book motif, with the prints acting as the artwork.
