Piano Under The Snow

Salvador Dali
Surrealistic Bullfight: Piano Under The Snow, (Le Piano Sous La Neige)1966 -1967.
ML/Argillet #156; Fields #70-11 F.
Original etching reworked in drypoint and hand-colored on Japon paper.
Signed and numbered in pencil at the lower margins.
This artwork is framed.

Inspired by Picasso’s “Tauromachie,” these etchings epitomize Dalí’s style with their burlesque touches. A burning giraffe, a lion, or a statue stand in the arena, while bishops are seen blessing macabre parades, where the bull ends up in the grand piano. Parrots and fish turn into toreadors, meanwhile, a hallucinogenic matador, like a sad clown, gazes at the audience. Lastly, a huge monster coming out of a television set devours the whole scene. A Catalan theme revisited by Picasso, then “Dalínized,” the “Surrealistic Bullfight” is seen as a ghoulish, delirious farce. © The Argillet Collection.
