Expert's comments : This lithograph is part of the stained glass series and in this series the theme of the human jungle which is composed of 6 lithographs. The titles of these lithographs are: The giraffe on fire - The elephant with the legs of a stork - The swallow - The rider - The fish - The virgin and the Rhinoceros. In this series, the Dalinian symbolism invites us to introspection and to understand the psychic forces of the unconscious. Dali made this lithograph because it symbolizes the conflict that existed in his native Spanish land as well as the one that could subsist in himself. The giraffe on fire symbolizes the duality of the human being.

Artist's biography Salvador Dalí is a Spanish painter born in Figueras in 1904 and died in the same city in 1989. DALI is considered one of the main representatives of surrealism and one of the most famous painters of the twentieth century. Influenced at a young age by Impressionism, he left Figueras to receive an academic artistic education in Madrid where he befriended Federico García Lorca and Luis Buñuel and sought his style by drawing on various artistic movements. On the advice of Joan Miró, he joined Paris at the end of his studies and joined the group of surrealists. He found his own style from 1929, when he became a full surrealist and invented the paranoid-critical method. Excluded from this group a few years later, he lived the Spanish Civil War in exile in Europe before leaving warring France for New York. On his return to Catalonia in 1949, he made a shift towards Catholicism in particular, hence his keen interest in works such as DANTE's Divine Comedy.
