Hand Colored Etching, Drypoint.
The Hippies. 1969-1970, Edition XXVII/C
In 1969, Pierre Argillet came back from India with many photographs, which Dali used as groundwork to create his series entitled “Les Hippies”, his own interpretation of the “Love and Peace” years. The etchings reveal the superb, spontaneous and consummate technique
of the artist at the peak of his maturity. Outlandish, surrealist characters or situations appear through intricate whirls or golden halos.
