Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a Spanish artist born in Figuera in Northern Spain. His artistic talent was noticed at an early age, leading to his acceptance into the Royal Academy of Art in Madrid. Best known for his later surrealist works, his art journey touched almost every style and media. Some of his early works are actually quite classical and excellently executed.
This original work, “Coronation of Gala”, is a hand signed limited edition (15/150) lithograph on arches paper, c.1976. The series is listed in “The Official Catalog of the Graphic Works of Salvador Dali“, by Albert Field and is immensely popular with collectors and are therefore difficult to find. Also known as “The Empress”, or “Gala, Empress of the World”, it was purchased in 1976 at Merrill Chase Galleries in Chicago and comes with a Certificate of Authenticity. It is hand signed and numbered in white pencil on the image.
