Salvador Dali - Salvador Dali

American Trotting Horse No.1

American Trotting Horse No.1 | Lithograph | 22″ x 30″ | #77/250

American Trotting Horses No.1 from the series “The World Of
Currier And Ives as interpreted by Salvador Dali” published by
Phyllis Lucas, New York. There are six original limited edition
lithographs plus a title page “Dali’s Presentation” in the series.
Each of the six lithographs has a miniature reproduction of the
original Currier & Ives subject at the bottom of the image.
American Trotting Horses No. 1 is a perfect example of Dali’s
whimsical sense of the absurd. In this interpretation the great
master replaces the trotting horses with one of his favorite
subjects…Butterfly’s. Dali’s audience is treated to a delightful
image of these magical winged creatures pulling what looks
like a giant bicycle that can hardly avoid tickling anyone’s
imagination. This original lithograph is in excellent condition
and is signed in pencil by the artist on Japon paper and
numbered 24/250.

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.
