Observations

Original edition certified by Robert Descharnes and publisher 2049 Obra Contemporanea as descended from Dali, and Accredited by the Gala-Salvador Dali Foundation (Figueras, Spain) in December, 2016.


In the Spanish of the time, Dulcinea means something akin to an overly elegant "sweetness"; a reference to someone as one's "Dulcinea" implies hopeless devotion and love for her, and particularly unrequited love.

 

She is all that is feminine, subtle, fragile, sweet… life! Don Quixote found the embodiment of Love in a village girl from El Toboso.  This amorous ideal, thou unperceived by others, was for the errant knight a source of stimulus and strength.  Dulcinea, as a real being, only existed in the mind of Don Quixote in Cervantes’ novel, but represented for him the ideal woman come true.
