This large format (11” x 14”) original gelatin silver photograph is one of the iconic images from the now legendary collaboration between Salvador Dali and portrait photographer Phillipe Halsman which began in the early 1940s.
From the “Halsman/Dali Portfolio” created in 1981, this carries the dated studio stamp and is numbered “149/250” verso.
Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was one of the original Surrealists from the 1920s together with Max Ernst, Man Ray, Luis Buñuel, Joan Miró and Marcel Duchamp. A larger-than-life personality and showman, he was renowned for his technical skill, precise draftsmanship and the striking and bizarre images in his work.
Halsman was born in Riga in 1906 and was an émigré in Paris in the 1930s before finding world fame in New York from the 1940s. With a quirky style and an amazing ability to put his subjects at ease, he became one of the foremost portrait photographers of his generation, including producing a staggering 101 covers for Life Magazine.
