Salvador Dali was a Spanish surrealist painter best known for his bizarre artworks.
He was a leader of the Surrealist Movement. The Persistence of Memory (1931), which shows soft, melting pocket watches on a beach, is one of the defining works of the style. Dali also created surrealist sculptures including Lobster Telephone, which features a plastic lobster attached to the handset.
He remains a hugely influential figure in the art world.
This is a large Salvador Dali drawing of a fire breathing dragon in orange crayon, accompanied by Dali's bold signature, dated 1968, and dedication 'Pour David', drawn in an Air France menu.
The menu measures approximately 11x17 inches (28x43cm), while the highly detailed drawing is approximately 5½x8 inches (14cmx20cm).
Dali clearly spent some time on this piece.
The Air France menu is for a private charter for the 'Far West Ski Association' on April 30, 1968, for a flight between Geneva-Montreal-Los Angeles.
Founded in 1930, the Far West Ski Association (FWSA) is a non-profit, volunteer organization that organised annual European ski trips for members in the 1960s.
This is only the second Dali drawing that we have had the pleasure of offering.
The other was a small Dali pencil drawing that achieved £18,000 in 2012.
