Originally created in 1976, Dalí applies his surrealist touch to the mythical figure of Lady Godiva, depicting her voluptuous female form in a light and delicate style, riding a white stallion with butterflies heralding her presence. Dalí once more adds his own unique interpretation to a classical image, paying everlasting homage to the female form.
"Lady Godiva With Butterflies" is one of six of his original paintings that have been reproduced into Limited Edition print format. The other prints include:
"Dance of Time
"Alice in Wonderland"
"Homage to Fashion"
In the early stages of Dali's career he was greatly inspired by the theories of Freud on the subconscious and the meaning of dreams. Indeed much of the surrealist movement can be paralleled with the work of Freud at that time. The foundation of the surrealist movement was based upon the explanation and interpretation of dreams and the hidden unconscious desires. To bring up images from his subconscious mind, Dalí began to induce hallucinatory states upon himself by a process he described as 'paranoiac critical'. Once Dalí perfected this method, his painting style matured very quickly and he began to produce the paintings that made him the world's best known surrealist artist.
