PROPERTY FROM A PRIVATE BELGIAN COLLECTION
Private Collection, Belgium
Acquired by the present owner in 1972
This original work was the basis for one of the lithographs used to illustrate Pages choisies de Don Quichotte de la manche by Joseph Forêt, published in 1957. This was Dalí’s first venture into lithography, although he had also worked on a set of illustrations of Don Quixote in 1946. Dalí appears to have been particularly enthusiastic about this project and was involved in a number of publicity stunts surrounding the process of producing the lithographs, including using a rhino horn dipped in ink to outline the sails of the mills.
