Dalí: Memories of Surrealism


In 1971, two publishers from New York commissioned Dalí for a series of prints about his memories of Surrealism.

During the time, Dalí’s practice was in line with Surrealism movement, which pushed his works to one after another achievement. In his whole life Dalí was devoted to the thinking and inspiration about Surrealism as he also said: “Surrealism is destructive, but it destroys only what it considers to be shackles limiting our vision.”
