Dalí for Argillet | Faust

Vividly illustrated, in...
…Dali’s version of the Faust legend the various scenes appear within a magic circle, in a chiaroscuro whose acme is the intricate portrait, “Faust Lisant,” evocative of Rembrandt’s etchings. Alchemical signs, formed by Dali’s inverted signature, add an esoteric, surreal feeling to the allegory that inspired Goethe, Gonoud, and others to create their finest works.
