Surrealism

Developed in the 1920s from the Dada movement, Surrealism took off in Paris through visual art and literature. The definitive trait of Surrealist artists is their general neglect for established norms in traditional art, forgoing standards and reason to create artwork full of unexpected pairings, unnatural juxtapositions and an overall feeling of astonishment. Through the Surrealism art, the leading artists of the movement (names like André Breton, Marcel Duchamp and Joan Miró) hoped to challenge the accepted cultural, social, political and personal views of society.

Marcel Duchamp "Obligation Monte Carlo" original lithograph | Monte Carlo Bond
$4,000.00
Marcel Duchamp Obligation Monte Carlo original lithograph bond
Medium: original lithograph. Also called "Monte Carlo Bond". A fine impression on wove paper, printed in 1938 for XXe Siecle (the very rare Christmas Issue No. 4) in an edition of approximately 1200 and published in Paris by San Lazzaro. Sheet size 12 3/8 x 8 3/4 inches (314 x 223 mm). Signed in the plate (not by hand).

Note to buyers: This piece is currently on loan to the Swiss Institute of Contemporary Art (New York) for "The St. Petersburg Paradox" exhibition (showing until August 17, 2014). The lithograph remains for sale but the buyer will take delivery after the show closes, and the Institute will issue a certificate of exhibition. Being on public exhibit in a New York museum will enhance the provenance and increase the value of this already fascinating work.

The fine print in the background reads, "moustiques domestiques demistock"; literally, half-priced mosquitos, reflecting Duchamp's whimsical sense of humor and his love of word-play. In the center is the famous portrait of Duchamp taken by his friend Man Ray. There has been much debate over this: is the artist wearing shaving cream or soap? And the "horns" on his head have been given various interpretations. On back of the sheet is printed the rules and instructions for actually redeeming the bond.

This work has acquired a certain cult status among twentieth century prints. However, it was first created not so much for the sake of art but rather as a get-rich-quick scheme whereby Marcel Duchamp could raise money by issuing bonds, and then "break the bank" at the roulette wheels of Monte Carlo. The first appearance of this piece was the actual edition of bonds, printed in 1924. Very few of the original 1924 bonds were printed and almost none have survived; one can be found in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art, donated to the museum by the artist; another was auctioned by Christie's in 2010 for over one million dollars. The version we offer here was executed by Duchamp as a lithographic recreation of bond number 12, and was issued in 1938 for the XXe Siecle edition, and has since become very scarce and highly sought after.

Condition: in fine condition, with the printed text instructions on the back for redeeming the bond (see photos); this helps to demonstrate the provenance of the piece. The only condition issue is that the left margin has been trimmed. The lithograph will be matted for exhibition but will be sold unframed.
Joan Miro Cahiers d'Art Surrealist Composition original pochoir, 1934
$3,000.00
Joan Miro Cahiers d'Art original pochoir, 1934
Medium: original pochoir. Catalogue reference: Dupin 15. This exquisite print was published in 1934 for the very hard-to-find Cahiers d'Art No. 1-4. Size: 315 x 240mm; 12 3/8 x 9 1/2 inches. Cahiers d'Art was published in Paris from 1926-1960 by Greek art collector, writer and art critic Christian Zervos. The rarest and most sought-after issues of this art revue were those issued in the 1930's containing original pochoirs by Miro and Marcel Duchamp. Zervos had high technical standards, and these works are truly stunning. Not signed (Miro only signed 48 impressions).

Condition: there are some superficial scuffs and scratches (but difficult to photograph and only visible from certain angles). A rich impression of this rare Miro masterpiece!
Joan Miro "Aidez L'Espagne" original pochoir
$3,000.00
Joan Miro Aidez L'Espagne original pochoir Cahiers 1937
Medium: original pochoir. Catalogue reference: Dupin 17. Printed in Paris by Imprimerie Moderne on watermarked wove paper and published as a special insert for the very rare Cahiers d'Art issue No. 4-5 in 1937. Signed in the plate (not signed by hand). Image size: 9 3/4 x 7 7/16 inches (247 x 190mm); the total sheet measures 12 3/8 x 9 1/4 inches (315 x 235mm).

Translated, the inscription reads, "In the current conflict on the Fascist side I see massive forces, and on the other side are the people whose immense and creative resourcefulness will give Spain a vitality which will astonish the world."  Executed in 1937 to protest fascism and rally support for the Republican cause during the Spanish Civil War; Miro was not generally considered a "political artist" and this was an unusual act for a cause dear to him. This design was actually intended to be used as a French postage stamp, which would be sold for 1 Franc to raise money for the Spanish Republican cause.

Condition: the left edge of the sheet has been slightly trimmed. Otherwise, in fine condition with strong, rich unfaded colors. One of Miro's most famous and important works and a lucky find!

Historical note: this screenprint was issued in order to promote the sale of a large mural by Miro, that would have been an astonishing 4 x 6 feet in size, also printed on canvas; an edition of 200 was planned for the full-size murals but it remains unclear if any were ever released. This smaller-size version that we offer here is now quite rare. The other artists who collaborated in this project were Roberto Sebastian Matta, Alexander Calder and Henri Matisse.  

Condition: some of the light blue background color has either been unevenly applied, or there has been some rubbing. There is old glue residue on back of the sheet at top, where it had once been mounted by the publisher onto a burlap board; the burlap has not been preserved.

Salvador Dali Divine Comedy woodblock engraving "The Logician Devil"
$500.00
Salvador Dali Divine Comedy The Logician Devil
Inferno - plate 27
Medium: woodblock engraving. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned by the Italian Government to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Dali created 101 watercolors to represent scenes from Dante's travels through Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. However, the extravagantly surrealistic art works were not well received by the Italian public at the time and the government canceled the project. Fortunately, French publisher Joseph Foret was interested and work began on the engraving of woodblocks, chosen as the best medium to represent the nuances of Dali's compositions into print format. The woodblocks were destroyed after printing.

This impression is a special decomposition, printed on BFK Rives wove paper and issued in 1963 by Les Heures Claires in a much smaller edition than the total edition of 4765. During the printing process, multiple wood blocks were used for each color separation. Deluxe suites were issued by the publisher containing a few decomposition proofs -- this particular proof shows the print in it's nearly finished state. Proofs such as this are rare and are sought after by collectors.

The image measures 9 3/4 x 7 inches (247 x 180 mm) with full original margins; the full sheet measuring 13 x 10 1/4 inches (330 x 263 mm). The Divine Comedy is held to be one of Dali's masterpieces and the artist himself considered this series to be among his most important works. A rich, magnificent impression. Not signed.

Executed in 1931, this is the first lithograph created by Giacometti; this impression on wove paper is from the second edition printed in 1952 for the hard-to-find XXe Siecle (issue No. 3), published in Paris by San Lazzaro.  Sheet size: 12 x 18 1/4 inches (308 x 464 mm).

Salvador Dali Divine Comedy woodblock engraving "The Guiding Angel"
$400.00
Salvador Dali Divine Comedy The Guiding Angel
Purgatory - plate 2
Medium: woodblock engraving. During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned by the Italian Government to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Dali created 101 watercolors to represent scenes from Dante's travels through Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. However, the extravagantly surrealistic art works were not well received by the Italian public at the time and the government canceled the project. Fortunately, French publisher Joseph Foret was interested and work began on the engraving of woodblocks, chosen as the best medium to represent the nuances of Dali's compositions into print format. The woodblocks were destroyed after printing.

This impression was beautifully printed on BFK Rives wove paper and issued in 1963 by Les Heures Claires in a total edition of 4765. The image measures 9 3/4 x 7 1/2 inches (245 x 190 mm) with full original margins; the full sheet measuring 13 x 10 1/4 inches (330 x 263 mm). The Divine Comedy is held to be one of Dali's masterpieces and the artist himself considered this series to be among his most important works. A rich, magnificent impression. Not signed.
