One of the mythology’s most recognized creatures, Pegasus, was a winged stallion and son of Poseidon, born of the Gorgon Medusa. Poseidon is best known as the god of the sea but is also the god of horses. Dalí illustrated Mythology by drawing very closely upon the symbolism of the ancient Greek legends. Using what he called “hazard objectif” (the meaningful manifestation of chance), he would often start with an abstract smudge, created in a single motion. 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.” When Dalí worked on these plates, he experimented with all kinds of unusual tools like chisels, nails or wheels.

The Mythology Suite consists of 16 mixed media prints incorporating engraving and drypoint etching, with hand-coloring, 22 x 30 inches. Published between 1963–1965. © The Pierre Argillet Collection.
