Salvador Dali Lithographs For Investment

Share This...

Salvador Dali lithographs are limited copies of original artworks made from etchings on limestone. The pictures are produced by the artist himself, and usually signed by hand afterwards. These are considered much more affordable when compared to the costs of purchasing the authentic piece. This is due to the fact that the Salvador Dali lithographs were produced copies of sketches done prior to the final image hanging in the gallery. Most collectors of art would be interested in acquiring these depictions, as they appreciate in value over time. These works make great art investments because this appreciation can be up to 20% a year, enabling the purchase to pay itself back in a matter of years.

The pieces were made by the artist’s hand using a limestone and greasy crayon as mediums. Dali was born in Spain, and became a Spanish surrealist. He was encouraged by the Master’s during the Renaissance period, which is obvious when one looks upon Salvador Dali lithographs. Though he also worked in other areas, such as sculpting or film, he really took a shine to painting. It was common for him to combine his love of symbolism and science to form one image. In 1931, he produced The Persistence of Memory. This painting depicted melting clocks to show the relativity of time and space in his eyes.

The process to produce such etchings is done simply with a few materials prior to beginning the project. These are the greasy crayon, oil-based ink, limestone, a canvas, and a rubber blanket. These are used to create a sort of stamp that recreates the image every time, using the chemical animosity between oil and water. The artist drew the image on the stone and wet it. Ink is applied to the surface and it attaches to the greasy outline. The blanket is pressed against the stone, and then against the canvas. This has allowed the artist to produce numerous Salvador Dali lithographs over time.

There are several well-known pieces available to purchase in this manner. There is a piece entitled The City of Drawers, made in 1936. The art shows a humanistic figure with a torso made up of drawers. This was, he claimed, to demonstrate how broken and divided up one person can be mentally. Another one of his sketches that is available is the Woman with a Head of Roses. In many works, he replaces a person’s head with another object. This particular trade was meant to show how silly and facetious the wealthier crowd was in his eyes.

When a customer desires to purchase Salvador Dali lithographs, they usually are aware of the appreciation in value that occurs over time. This means that the net worth of the drawing grows every year. Collectors often use their collections as personal savings, considered to be a method of having money without having it in cash. This is because it is easier to save when it is a collector’s item. The artwork is able to be passed down in the family, and used to ensure education or as a financial safety net.
