The Mythology - Salvador Dalí
‘The Mythology’ suite by Salvador Dali consists of 16 engravings in total. The suite was published by Pierre Argillet in Paris at intervals between 1960-1964.
Dali created the given set of illustrations by using the symbolism of the ancient Greek legends. The artist used the so-called ‘Hasard Objectif’- technique adapted by Andre Breton that allowed Dali to start the drawing by a spontaneous hand movement that would give him the basis for the sketch. This way Dali gave birth to his masterpieces with the help of fate, relying solely on the chance.
