    Salvador Dalí's "Cyclopean Make-Up" (1975), part of his "Imaginations and Objects of the Future Portfolio," is a lithograph with collage elements on Japon paper. Created at the tail end of his Surrealist period, the piece features the dreamlike imagery characteristic of the movement.

    The title directly references the single, central eye dominating the composition. This all-seeing eye, a recurring motif in Dalí's work, can be interpreted in various ways. It could symbolize a higher power, a state of heightened perception, or even a scientific advancement yet to be realized. The collage elements, a signature technique of Dalí, add a layer of complexity. These fragments, often from scientific publications or classical art, create a juxtaposition that both disrupts and intrigues the viewer.

    "Cyclopean Make-Up" exemplifies Dalí's enduring fascination with the intersection of dreams, science, and the future. While not one of his most famous works, it offers a glimpse into his creative mind during a specific period in his artistic development.

    Excellent condition. Never framed.
