Likely Forgery of Salvador Dali's "Space Elephant" (1971).

Auction end date: 11/14/2011
Sale price: $676
Details: a number of pieces of evidence suggest that this work is a forgery of original intaglio "Space Elephant" (Field #71-15d on pp. 68-9): No. EA (there are no unnumbered EA prints of this work); the blind stamp is not authentic (see Field pp. 231-2); very low resolution photos of this work; incorrect title given as "Celestial Elephant"; however, 21.5" x 30" is about the correct paper size.
