“Les Songes Drolatiques de Pantagruel” (Pantagruel's Comical Dreams) by Salvador Dali, 1973, lithograph of gouaches and felt pencil on Japanese paper.

The collection created by Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) consists of a series of phantasmagorical representations for the novels written in the 1530s by François Rabelais, narrating the adventures of two giants - Gargantua and his son Pantagruel - “The Horrible and Terrifying Deeds and Words of the Very Renowned Pantagruel King of the Dipsodes, Son of the Great Giant Gargantua”. This book of tall tales, commonly known as Pantagruel, is chronologically the second volume of a series that follows the outlandish escapades of a family of giants.

The Surrealists examination of the human psyche and dreams reached new apices in the works of Salvador Dalí. In his “Songes” Dalí explored a deeply erotic dimension, studying the writings of Richard von Krafft-Ebing (1840-1902) and Sigmund Freud, and conceiving what he called the “paranoiac-critical method” to abet his creative process. 
This sort of illustration on one-dimensional fields of color offers a sense of animation common to storytelling comics. “Les Songes” prove that Dalí was fearless and unapologetic. Even in the most vile, obscene subject matter—Dalí manages to find the sophistication in its humor. When it comes to Dalí, nothing is out of bounds.


萨尔瓦多·达利(Salvador Dali)创作的“潘塔格鲁尔(Les Songes Drolatiques de Pantagruel)潘塔格鲁尔(Les Songes Drolatiques de Pantagruel)”,1973年,萨瓦多·达利(Salvador Dali),在日本纸上作水粉石版画和毡笔。


萨尔瓦多·达利的作品中,超现实主义者对人类心理和梦想的检验达到了新的高度。达利(Dalí)在他的《歌曲》中探索了一个深深的情色维度,研究了理查德·冯·克拉夫特·埃宾(Richard von Krafft-Ebing,1840-1902年)和西格蒙德·弗洛伊德(Sigmund Freud)的著作,并构想了他所谓的“偏执批评方法”,以教a他的创作过程。
这种在一维颜色域上的插图提供了讲故事的漫画所共有的动画感。 《歌曲》(Les Songes)证明达利无所畏惧,毫不歉po。即使在最卑鄙,淫秽的主题中,达利也设法在幽默中找到成熟之处。说到达利,没有什么是不可能的。
