There are many and diverse Salvador Dali prints that Dali created in his career. The artist began studying impressions while he was still quite young, so it should come as no surprise that he created an astonishing 1,700 prints in his lifetime. He understood prints in a way that few others did. This factor shows both in the quality of his work and the volume of that work. Among the works of Salvador Dali, many experts consider his prints to be some of the best examples of printmaking in recent generations.

The Diverse Works of Salvador Dali

Much of what makes Dali prints so compelling is their diversity. Even though Dali produced hundreds of prints, the quality is overall remarkable. There is much discussion of Dali and his genius, but this fact often gets lost along the way.

The Uniqueness of Salvador Dali Prints

Salvador Dali was unique among artists for many reasons. One of the key ways in which he differs was that he was able to work in so many different mediums successfully.

While Salvador Dali paintings often receive the bulk of attention from art lovers, there is no doubt that his work in other mediums was impressive, to say the least.

The Dali Prints and the Gala-Dali Foundation

Thanks to the work of the Gala-Dali Foundation, we have a vast and comprehensive collection of Dali works. The size of this compilation underscores just how impressive and prolific Dali life's work was and the extent of its impact.

The Gala-Dali Foundation oversees a collection that has over 4,000 separate pieces ranging from Salvador Dali surrealism to his classical period. This fact is made all the more impressive and staggering when one stops to consider that the collection is more than Salvador Dali paintings or Dali prints. Found in the Gala-Dali Foundation collection are sculptures, holograms, engravings and even jewelry.

In short, Dali was amazingly diverse in the mediums in which he worked and how he approached the creation of art. Any artist who creates in such mediums as painting and holography is driven and motivated to both, create and leave a lasting impact upon not just the art world, but also the world at large. In this regard, Dali was a resounding success.

Dali Prints and Les Chants de Maldoror

Dali felt free to express himself in his print work. Whether it was working in etchings, photo-litho, or a range of other methods, Dali played with many different themes. Quite often, he took inspiration from literature, for example, Hamlet, and at other times he turned to nature.

Those looking to understand more about Dali prints or Salvador Dali surrealism will want to explore Les Chants de Maldoror. The Les Chants de Maldoror is considered to be one of the Dali's crowning achievements in the world of prints.

Dali illustrated the Les Chants de Maldoror in spectacular style. Written between 1868 and 1869 by Isidore Lucien Ducasse, the work is viewed as being an inspiration for surrealists such as Dali, Marcel Duchamp, and others. The nature of the work incorporates a non-linear narrative style which appealed to the surrealist movement.
