The 18 lithographs composing « Les Chevaux de Dali » (The Horse of Salvador Dali) portfolio were created after 25 gouaches paintings that Salvador Dali painted during 1971.
The horse theme was frequently used by Dali throughout his career. The horse is seen as a symbol of beauty and elegance as well as a symbol for strength and rawness. This portfolio is an homage to the animal itself and all the symbols it represents in modern culture, mythology and history of humanity and art.
