Salvador DalÍ (spanish, 1904-1989) Working Maque
12 x 9 inches (30.5 x 22.6 cm) Using a catalog for a previous El Greco loan exhibition at Knoedler Galleries, Dalí laid out pages for his upcoming exhibition. The first page of the "Dalí to the reader" introduction is laid out as cut-out printed text, followed by a sketched layout of both the half-title and title pages, and then the Dalí intro continues in six tipped-in handwritten pages. There are three handwritten illustration and painting title pages. Sixteen original tipped-in Dalí sketches follow with handwritten titles below. Annotations and text are in Gala Dalí's hand; Salvador Dalí's handwriting appears on three pages. An amazing document of the Surrealist master's exhibition record.
