This week, we’re throwing the spotlight on Dalí with an incredible auction of over 40 artworks by the Surrealist master Salvador Dalí.
The artist was known as much for his fantastical, surrealistic imagery as he was for his unconventional, eccentric lifestyle that blended seamlessly with his artwork. This exciting, curated selection includes works by Dalí in a range of media, including prints, sculptures, and photographs.
