About the Work
Salvador Dalí is commonly regarded as one of the greatest Surrealist artists, whose personality was often displayed within his magnificent works of art. He practiced sculpting, advertising, printmaking, fashion, filmmaking, and more. Dalí’s mischievousness and wonderful personality contributed to his status as an international celebrity, but he is better known for his most distinct attribute: his mastery of art. Dalí’s significance and talent rank him among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20th century. "The Angel" is a hand-signed engraving in the Le Paradis Perdu series. The image size is 10.5 x 8.25 - inches.
Regarded as one of the most important works in literature, John Milton’s Paradise Lost (Paradis Perdu) was illustrated in ten color etchings by master Salvador Dalí in 1974. The simplicity of line and careful draftsmanship exhibit the very turmoil of man’s battle with the temptation of Satan. This series is noted as having some of Dalí’s sharpest lines.
The incredible image by Dalí portrays an angel in the signature Dalí style. The slim angel stands firmly at the center of the picture, with one leg in front of the other to show it's moving forward. Many lines radiate off of the angel, as to symbolize it's unique aura. The angel's marvelous wings extend from it's back and is massive in size. This angel also has beautiful curly golden hair and a graceful halo that floats above its head. The figure seems to be reaching its arm out to grab a golden flower that lies amongst a shrub. However, this flower is not like most and rises over the angel. It is also a lovely golden color, which makes it stand out among the dark shrub it is rooted in.
