LONDON.- The largest collection of Dali works to be seen together in London for decades is set to go under the hammer at Roseberys on Thursday 17 October.

There are 170 lots in the auction with estimates ranging from £200 to £60,000. Rosebery’s paintings expert Marcus Grey says, “The work spans the whole of Dali’s career from his early days right through to examples influenced by American Pop Art in the 1960s and 70s. People familiar just with Dali’s most reproduced surrealist works will be staggered to see the full range and extent of the graphic work he produced. It is not surprising he is cited as a major influence on contemporary artists the world over.”

This collection has been built over 30 years by the current owner who has carefully selected and researched works to include early examples of graphic works in drypoint etching and heliogravure and later full suites of lithographs in colours.

In addition there are vintage photographs of Dali that capture his working , private and public life.

Highlights of the sale include:

Lot 56, a first edition of "Les Chants de Maldoror", by Comte de Lautréamont, publ by Albert Skira, 1934, to include the complete suite of 44 heliogravures by Dali.

Lot 97, the complete suite of The Divine Comedy comprising 100 colour wood engravings each signed and numbered in coloured crayon.

Lot 2, an early heliogravure reworked in drypoint by Dali titled "Le Revolver à Cheveux Blancs", 1932 to illustrate André Breton’s book of the same name.

A selection of bronze editions including Lot 61, "Rhinoceros Habille en Dentelles", from the foundry Valsuani, and Lot 40, "Le Minotaure" from the same foundry. This was the front cover of Minotaure magazine, no 8.1936.

The auction will take place on Thursday 17 October at 2pm at The Clubhouse, 11-14 Grafton Street, Mayfair, London W1.
