Salvador Dali Tapestry… Battle Around A Dandelion

Salvador Dali…1904-1989 tapestry “Battle Around A Dandelion”. Published in France by DEMART PRO ARTE 1988. #247 of 600. It is already framed and matted to 66 x 54 inches. A Certificate of Authenticity will accompany this work. The intricately rendered tapestry conveys a scene reminiscent of classical paintings and sculptures, depicting an idealized view of the human form. Warriors on horseback engage in battle around an unusual object, a dandelion. The viewer cannot be certain of the cause of this epic battle; perhaps it is over the city in the distant background or the dandelion itself. Regardless, it appears to be a brutal battle to the death. This work has a surreal appearance with the lack of detailed eyes in the face and the vaguely defined, barely visible background, yet the work also illustrates the artist’s technical skill and mastery of the human form. The soft brown coloration of the work gives a sense of warmth and richness to the environment. Based on the original 1947 oil painting, this tapestry is published by Tapisseries du Lion with a Certificate of Authenticity issued by Tapisseries du Lion attached on verso. This piece is numbered from the edition of 600 on this certificate on the verso with the woven signature ‘Salvador Dali’ in black on the front in the lower left… 66″W x 54″H… $3800
