Lot Notes

"Le Cheval de Course" is part of "Les Chevaux de Dali (The Dalinian Horses)" series that was created by Dali between 1970 and 1972.

The horse theme was frequently used by Dalí throughout his career. On the one hand, the horse can be seen as a symbol of beauty and elegance; on the other hand, it stands for strength and rawness. Nevertheless, the horse has played an important role in the history of humanity and in the history of art, as demonstrated through the art of Delacroix and Velázquez, or Dali's fellow national Pablo Picasso.
