In 1969 Pierre Argillet came back from India with many photographs, which Dali used as groundwork to create a series entitled “Les Hippies,” his own interpretation of the “Love and Peace” years. The etchings reveal the superb, spontaneous, and consummate technique of the artists at the peak of his maturity. Outlandish, surrealist characters or situations appear through intricate whirls of golden halos.

Salvador Dalí was born on May 11, 1904, in Figueres, Spain. From an early age Dalí was encouraged to practice his art, and he would eventually go on to study at an academy in Madrid. In the 1920s, he went to Paris and began interacting with artists such as Picasso, Magritte and Miró, which led to Dalí's first Surrealist phase. He is perhaps best known for his 1931 painting The Persistence of Memory, showing melting clocks in a landscape setting. Dalí died in Figueres in 1989.
