    More info about Dali fakes can be found by clicking here, but a short piece of advice when thinking of buying a Dali signed print, etching, lithograph or otherwise: don't just trust a dealer or auction house. Do your own research and with this in mind this book will prove invaluable and might save you a bundle.

    In their acknowledgements to Salvador Dali: Catalogue Raisonne of Prints I - Etchings and Mixed-Media Prints, 1924-1980, published in 1993, authors Ralf Michier and Lutz W. Loepsinger thanked Robert Descharnes, Dali's personal secretary of many years, for "protecting us from the small band of interested parties who tried to obstruct our research, even into forgeries, by means of intimidation, threats of litigation, and intrigue." Although Dali produced far fewer lithographs and wood engravings than etchings and mixed-media graphics, the problems encountered by the authors for this second volume were in no way diminished, as once again there exist a large number of forgeries that were made on signed sheets of blank paper. This title illustrates the total output of this bizarre period of the artist's life.

    Until 1956, Dali rejected lithography as an artistic medium. He considered the technique "weak and bureaucratic". It was only the insistence of the publisher Josef Foret that led him to become more involved, in a predictably unconventional fashion, however. He worked on stone, both on the Paris streets and in his garden in Cadaques. Light bulbs filled with lithographic ink were smashed against stone, or ink-filled bullets were fired at printing plates from antique rifles or crossbows to produce the first tachist graphics in history.

    This book is becoming almost impossible to find. Actually I haven't seen one in years. I've put direct links to the title on various amazons as they usually have copies. It's getting expensive now but if you are serious about buying Dali prints then I can't think of an alternative to owning the book. You just have to have the book.
