Dali illustrated Mythology by drawing very closely upon the symbolism of the ancient Greek legends. Using what he called “hasard objectif ”(the meaningful manifestation of chance), he would often start with an abstract smudge, created in a single motion, and he developed his theme from this sign of Fate, like the Pythia of Delphi who interpreted the Oracle from the smoke coming out of the cave. This is particularly noticeable in his etchings entitled: “Oedipus and Sphinx”, “Theseus and Minotaurus”, “Jupiter”, “Pegasus”, and “The Milky Way”. © The Argillet Collection.
