In this complicated mix media print from Dali’s Fruits suite, he brings together photolithography and engraving to reinvigorate the classic Christian symbol of the bleeding Sacred Heart. The work began by Dali painting in guache over a nineteenth century illustration of strawberries. Dali’s guache was then reproduced through photolithography, and it was enhanced with the white line drawing done in engraving at the bottom.
