Dali created and etched this very well-known composition working with Georges Visat. Visat was one of the most influential printers of artist’s works in etching in Paris from the 1930’s onwards. His understanding of the special visual tones and effects which could be created through the varying ways of using the medium had a profound effect first on the re-war Surrealist circle and then, in the post-war years on very many of the great artists of the era from Giacometti to Delaunay and including Dali.
