The story of Don Quixote was written in the 16th century by Miguel de Cervantes. This story is historically considered to be the first fictional book ever written. The ambitious publisher Joseph Forêt successfully convinced Dalí to create the illustrations to Don Quixote for a luxurious book edition with the lithographic process. Dalí worked for the first time in his career with this technique. In order to revolutionize this technology, Dalí used rhinoceros horns and an Arquebuse (a gun from the 15th century). The explosive character caused by the gun appears in many single images of the series.

Salvador Dalí, 1904-1989, was one of the most celebrated and successful artists of the 20th century. His style was the most famous and most creative of the twentieth century because he developed and nourished a style that was insignificant before his time. The dominant themes in his career revolved around his childhood, sexual desires, and on the study of the unconscious mind. At his death in 1989, Dali even insisted that he be buried in his own museum, in a lasting demonstration that for the artist, as well as for his audience the art and the man are inseparable. Decade after his death, the brand name of Salvador Dali has not declined. While his celebrity persists, it’s perhaps more surprising that Dali’s Paintings continue to shock audiences half a century after their creation.
