The Divine Comedy and Salvador Dali’s Hand Signature

None of editions of the Divine Comedy were released with hand signatures by Salvador Dali. The editor, Mr. Jean Estrade of Les Heures Claires, over a period of years, had Dali sign complete sets. These sets were sold by Les Heures Claires to prominent art dealers and private collectors. In addition, Dali was commissioned to sign suites of the Divine Comedy purchased from Les Heures Claires for several prominent collectors including Marc Ways. Dali also signed sets that had been acquired by Dr. Giuseppe Albaretto, friend and patron of Salvador Dali. In addition, sets were signed for three different galleries - Orangerie Galerie of Cologne, Germany; Lublin Fine Arts of Greenwich, Connecticut; and Transworld Art of New York.
