From the famed Collection of Dr. Edmund Klein, skin-care physician to Salvador Dali

Drawn in 1977, in the book "DALI" edited by David Larkin, two of these three works capture the pride a spirit of Don Quixote, one of Dali’s favorite stories and a character after which he patterned his own conquering spirit. A delightful Don Quixote figure at the top, made up of squiggly lines and a ruffled collar holds a shield and spear, the latter also forming the “P” in the dedication “pour mon gran ami (for my great friend) Dr. Klein.”

The lower figure is again Don Quixote, now on horseback, under which we see the figure of a father and son walking hand in hand, casting a long Daliesque shadow. The third work, showing two lovers, is the declared favorite of Dr. Klein’s daughter Amy. The simplicity of line belies the deep sense of timeless beauty and passion of the couple, as a shooting star streaks the sky beneath a sun-suffused cloud, and a horse and rider appear at the left.
