Venus in Furs

Sacher Masoch Vignettes

Joining in the sadomasochistic game suggested by the text from Sacher Masoch, Salvador Dali often portrayed himself as a man, a woman or a hermaphrodite, either in pain or inflicting pain, in a setting where Eros and Thanatos are laughing at each other. A major, powerful work, where Dali’s freedom of line and thought are best expressed.

20 original drypoint etchings with roulette, of which 16 are 15 x 11 in. and 4 are vignettes. Published in 1969.
