      39 1/4x55 inches, 99 3/4x139 3/4 cm. I.G.A.P., Rome.
      Condition B+ / B: restoration and restored losses along vertical and horizontal folds; repaired tears and minor restoration in margins.
      A rare and exceptional exhibition poster for the first major retrospective of Dali's work in Italy,which traveled from Rome to Venice, and then to Milan. Among other works exhibited were 102 watercolors for the Divine Comedy. The exhibition also included a bit of performance art on Dali's part, as he was carried through the city in a cube by hooded men, only to emerge at his press conference. This poster tantalizingly shows both a detail of Guido Reni's 1614 Aurora, a ceiling fresco in the Palazzo Rospigliosi, and Dali's 1934 painting, The Ghost of Vermeer of Delft Which Can be Used as a Table. There wasn't another Dali exhibition in Italy of this size until 2010.
