Observations

This pen and ink drawing by Salvador Dalí is signed in the lower right image “Dali” in ballpoint pen.
The subject is inscribed “Pour l’aigle de Port Lligat” [For the eagle of Port Lligat], in the centre of the composition”.
The subject has been drawn by the artist on the verso of a photograph depicting Dalí with a nude female model in a Surrealistic composition.

Provenance: Richard De Grab (1927-2021). Esteemed Czech Photographer.
The work has been authenticated by Nicolas Descharnes and is accompanied by a photo-certificate with the archive reference: d7036.

Note: The setting for the drawing is the village of Port Lligat on the Costa Brava in North-Eastern Spain. The distinctive coastline is used as the backdrop for a large eagle, wings outstretched and with a halo above its head. The inspiration for the eagle motif is likely to have come from a stuffed eagle, now held in the village museum’s library.

Condition: Excellent condition.
