Lot description
Marc Lacroix, Salvador Dali "The Many Faces of Dali: Profile"

This is an original cibachrome photograph by French photographer Marc Lacroix of Salvador Dali. The image depicts Dali's profile holding his signature cane and wearing a very surrealist top hat with drawers, images, and faces emerging from the hat.

The photo was taken at the home of Dali in Port Lligat, Spain in the early 1970's. In addition Lacroix took a series of photos of Dali at his home at the same time.

This photograph is hand signed and numbered by the artist. It is from a limited edition of 10, and is number 6/10. Size: 20x24 in.



Marc Lacroix met Salvador Dali as a result of their mutual interests in special photographic effects. In 1971, Dali and Lacroix produced a special Christmas edition of VOGUE Magazine, in which Lacroix's photographs in combination with Dali's pictures became famous. Later, Dali worked with Lacroix to develop a new technique - stereoscopic painting (three dimensional painting). In 1974, at the opening of the DALI MUSEUM in Figueras, Spain, Dali reserved a large room for Lacroix's photographs. The following years the NIKON Gallery in Paris exhibited Lacroix's photographs in conjunction with the work of Robert Descharnes, a writer and photographer who also worked with Dali. In addition to his collaboration with Dali, Lacroix photographed major private and public oil painting collections; the Bank Lambert Collection in Brussels, the Durand Ruel in Paris, Picasso's Museum in Barcelona and The Centre Pompidou, Beaubourg, Paris. Marc Lacroix studied and became equally successful in various photographic fields, although his work with Dali contributed the most to this fame.
