Stratton Foundation Exhibition Catalog, 1989; reprint 1995.
It is a lengthy 261 pages and is filled with stunning full-page color photos of Dali sculptures, and generously-sized color reproductions of a number of illustration suites (etchings, lithographs, watercolors, dry-points, engravings, etc.), and much more.
You'll also find a number of unique photos of Dali at work and at play, a section of objects made of gold, and a section of works titled "anamorphoses." These latter works appear distorted until viewed in the reflection of a round tube strategically placed on top of the work. I remember seeing some of these in person at the museum in Figueres back in 1995.
- Don Quichotte (1957, 12 lithographs);
- Le Tricorne (1959, 20 wood engravings);
- La Vida es Sueno (1975, 16 watercolors);
- Casanova (1967, 14 lithographs);
- Le Marquis de Sade (1968, 25 lithographs);
- Alice in Wonderland (1969, 13 engravings);
- Gargantua and Pantagruel (1973, 25 lithographs);
- Moses and Monotheism (1974, 10 lithograph-ethings);
This is one catalog that you don't want to pass by, especially if you don't have any Stratton catalogs in your collection. These people really put out a superb product.
You might be able to find one of these for under $20, especially if you wait it out for a rare auction, otherwise you might have to shell out about $40 for this catalog. You definitely need one of these, so happy hunting!
