the cross of mars (with special remark), by Salvador Dalí
This Dali is a wonderful addition to our small gallery here at Artistic Picture Framing. The Cross of Mars comes from a series of prints from woodcuts that Salvador Dali made in tribute Dante's Divine Comedy. The Cross of Mars is from a scene during the ascension (Paradiso). This piece is special, because it contains an added remark from Dali - visible in the left are two figures sketched (a skeletal figure kneeled in prostration, and an ethereal silhouette grasping a cross above her bosom. Surreal as always, the remarks by Dali are wonderful, and we are proud to have him in our gallery. Closed-end gloden frame with floral motifs and abstract criss-cross markings.
