The Salvador Dali signature managed to create its own degree of controversies, even though he was definitely one of the history’s most fascinating artists. The works of Salvador Dali are some of the best-known pieces of art of all time. It is consequently no surprise that there are an array of forgeries and fakes floating around the world. In fact, it is believed that there are literally thousands of limited edition art prints that bear his signature and are nothing more than forgeries!
Confusion About Salvador Dali Signature
How did this all of this confusion and chaos regarding the Dali signature begin in the first place? What did Salvador Dali do? Dali played a huge role in the scandal. At one point, he signed thousands of blank pages for $40 each so that they could be produced as prints. With those many signatures floating around, it is no real shock that forgeries emerged. Dali stopped this practice in 1980, but by then there were many signature examples to be used.
Part of the problem is that the usual practice for limited edition prints is to make the prints and then later sign all of them once they have gone through the press and have been authenticated. Dali departed from the traditional way of producing signed prints so that he could make money faster.
How do you know if the Dali artwork you are going to buy is genuine or fake? The answer should be given by experts. Some specialized companies can perform a Dali's signature authentication and give you the right advice. Also, the Salvador Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres offers this service to determine authorship of Dali artworks.
Dali was an Artist Who Knew How to Make a Profit
Dali was an incredible self-promoter and found innovative ways to translate his fame and success into monetary gain. History shows that not every artist can marry their artistic vision with a business model and eventual financial success.
Dali, however, was no such artist and was often able to find ways to find the funds that he needed. In a sense, Dali’s innovation in the art world was mirrored by his creativity elsewhere. His approach towards his own signature and the development of perfumes are excellent examples of how Dali transcended what many people felt an artist was, could be and could do.
There can be no doubt that Dali was an innovator. Whether we are looking to Salvador Dali paintings, Salvador Dali jewelry or his perfume, we see great creativity in everything that Dali touched. As it turns out, Dali may have produced more copies of his signature than any other artist who ever lived. In this fashion, Dali figured out yet another way to be different, stand out and change the game.
