Adam & Eve from the Our Historical Heritage Portfolio Intaglio, engraving & color pochoir on Japon simili, 1975
SA 48/300 in pencil printed for South America (there was also an edition of 400 with variations of colors)
The hand signed engravings from Our Historical Heritage are Salvador Dali’s interpretation of important events and historical figures from the Torah or Old Testament. The images that Dali created for this 1975 portfolio make the artist’s tendency for religious themes, seen throughout much of the his work, very apparent. The 11 original engravings are quality representations of Dali’s draftsmanship, illustrated with pochoir coloring that allows for a unique variation on each print.
