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.
