Salvador Dali Cranes mous et harpe cranienne 1935

Salvador Dali Cranes mous et harpe cranienne (Limp Cranes and “Cranian” Harp) 1935 is an etching. Roger Lacourière printed the etching. The total tirage is unknown. The MoMA web-site gives as much information available regarding this etching as anywhere. The image size is 22 1/2 x 15 3/4.” Plus, the sheet size is 29 7/8 x 22.” This is a very small edition. This etching appears to be a proof. It is printed on an unwatermarked paper. The paper itself has printer’s creases. It is unevenly trimmed. It has printer’s smudges in the margins and a few in the image. There is a rich burr.  There is an unidentified collector’s stamp in the lower right corner.  Plus, the etching is signed in blue crayon.

Michler and Lopsinger catalogue the etching as #56. Field does not include the etching in the current catalogue. However, there are indications that it will be included in the revised catalogue. Michler and Lopsinger indicate only a few impressions are known. Most of these are unsigned and auction catalogues indicate that some of these were printed after 1935.
