The subject of Salvador Dali’s print is based on Miguel de Cervantes’ 17th-century novel, The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha. The print was signed by the artist, whose signature appears under the mat.
Dali was the best-known proponent of representational Surrealism in painting. In this print, however, Dali’s use of geometric shapes, particularly in the drawing of the horse and its nude rider, seem to pay homage to Picasso and Cubism.
