About the Work
The Arrival of Iseult (Tristan and Iseult, Plate G)
image size: 16 x 10.5
This drypoint measuring 16 x 10.5 inches is framed in archival materials.
Tristan and Iseult is a classic medieval tale of dragon-slaying, royalty, knights, love, adultery, honor, betrayals and disguises. It is the forerunner of the Arthurian legend where Tristan, Iseult and King Marc correspond to Lancelot, Guinevere and King Arthur. Through the ages, the trials and tribulations of these lovers have been told in tones of the utmost seriousness as well as comically. Dalí depicts his favorite scenes from the story in 21 color-printed drypoint etchings, mixing scenes from various tellings.
About the Artist
Spanish Artist Salvador Dalí was a Surrealist icon best known for his articulate skill and exquisite works of art. Dalí is among the most versatile and prolific artists of the 20th century, partially due to his explorations of subconscious imagery. He practiced sculpting, printmaking, fashion, advertising, filmmaking and more. His flamboyant personality and mischievousness contributed to his rise to becoming an international celebrity, however, his mastery of art is arguably his most distinct attribute.
