From the artist’s series concerning a bestiary – an anecdotal treatise on mythical animals that was prevalent in medieval works, often with a moralizing tone – this work contains many of the elements Dalí is most famous for. With a dream-like ambiance and confluence of imagery, we see a skeletal monkey painting a leopard as etched figures roam underneath.
SALVADOR DALI (1904-1989) Salvador Dali's work is associated with the surrealist movement of the 20th Century. A diverse and multi-talented artist, Dali is considered one of the most collected artists today, and his works offer an incredible opportunity for enormous appreciation in value. In addition to his original works, Dali produced works on paper for reproduction using dry point, etching, woodcut, and lithography. Many of his works are held in prestigious private and public collections world-wide.
