In 1963, the Italian art collector Giuseppe Albaretto asked his friend Salvador Dali to illustrate the Bible...
Between 1964 and 1967, Dali will create 105 watercolours that will serve as a model for the 105 mixed techniques which illustrate the original edition of the BIBLIA SACRA in five magnificent leather volumes edited by RIZZOLI in Milan. Each lithograph is loose in the book.
Each lithograph is signed and dated in the plate.
The 105 illustrations are reproduced and referenced in:
The official catalogue of the graphic works of Salvador Dali, written by Albert Field

Salvador Dali, is unanimously recognized as the greatest surrealist artist, one of the greatest artists of the 20th century and definitively the most charismatic. The work offered for sale is part of a collection, in addition to the most famous paintings and rarities by the artist, most of which are rarely or have never been seen. The collection consists mainly of lesser-known paintings and drawings from the many periods of one of the most prolific artists of our time.
Not all of these works are always the most "beautiful" in the aesthetic sense of the word, although in Dali's work, beauty is a constant. They are all interesting, very exciting, each one is representing a part of the journey of this artist who has an overflowing, abundant, delusional imagination. These are all testimonies of the history of this genuine creative genius.
To be discovered. With rare exceptions, I only own one copy of each.
