Salvador Dali (1904-1989, Spain) - Rare and unique, hand-signed limited edition (in Roman Numerals: CMXCVI/MM or #996/2000) lithograph titled "Exquisite Cadaver" (1935.) There is a large pencil signature in the lower right, it is embossed with the Dry seal of the Gala-Dali edition, and it is printed on deckle-edge BFK Rives fine art paper. The dimensions are 20" x 26." The parlor game of Exquisite Corpse was popular in Paris during the 1920s among artists and poets in the Surrealist circle who took turns adding onto each other's drawings and collages of the human body, a process that resulted in fantastic composite figures.
