A wood block print based upon the watercolors produced by Salvador Dali for the critically acclaimed illustration of Dante's Divine Comedy. The monumental collaboration of painter, wood block artists, and publishers spanned a period of nearly 25 years. This particular print is from Inferno Canto 4 News of the Limbos.
While prints from the Divine Comedy are readily available, this one is particularly desirable above the others. The Divine Comedy series was produced in 4 editions - 2 French, 1 Italian, 1 German. Some are signed in the block, while others are not signed at all. However, there were a few which were signed by Dali in blue, red, and black. Even fewer were signed in crayon - such as is the case with ours. The signature is an artistic moment in its own right, and was clearly executed for a special occasion.
The print's frame with its tiered matting is equal to the excellence of the print. It is mounted on acid free backing, but has not been examined out of the frame. There is a certificate of authenticity attached to the year, but as our discerning collectors know, these certificates of authenticity are useless.
We stand by the authenticity of the print for up to 30 days for a full refund. We will extend the period through negotiation if requested.
