Dali's "Deux Fatrasies" Fraudulent Etching (aka "Don Quixote").


Auction end date: 3/2/2012
Sale price: $103
Details: 9" x 6" image;
NOTE: The title of this etching is actually "Diogene en Son Tonneau" from the book Deux Fatrasies (Field catalog #63-2A, p. 23).  The plate was canceled with a single hole in the upper left, where the moon appears!  This moon identifies the print as one from a fraudulent edition made by Leon Amiel (Field catalog, pp. 238 & 240).

Suspect "Loup Edition" Les Diners de Gala Litho: Les Delices Petits Martyrs--SELLS AGAIN...AND AGAIN!!!

Auction end date: 2/25/2012
Sale price: $1325
Details: 75 x 56cm BFK Rives paper; No. 45 of 195.
Note: the paper size and the edition of 195 is consistent with an edition advertised circa 1978 by Jean-Paul Loup (published by Lavigne) subsequent to the original distribution of 395 on Rives (Field, p. 110).  Significant controversies and contradictions surround this extended edition of prints, and not all signatures are by Dali's hand (Field, p.235).  In my opinion, the signature pictured on this print is a forgery, making this print a counterfeit.
