Venus in Furs:
Sacher Masoch Vignettes
Joining in the sadomasochistic game suggested by the text from Sacher Masoch, Salvador Dali often portrayed himself as a man, a woman or a hermaphrodite, either in pain or inflicting pain, in a setting where Eros and Thanatos are laughing at each other. A major, powerful work, where Dali’s freedom of line and thought are best expressed.
The Hippies Series:
In 1969, Pierre Argillet came back from India with many photographs, which Dali used as groundwork to create his series entitled “Les Hippies”, his own interpretation of the “Love and Peace” years. The etchings reveal the superb, spontaneous and consummate technique of the artist at the peak of his maturity. Outlandish, surrealist characters or situations appear through intricate whirls or golden halos.
