Dears,
I just bought this etchnig from Van Ham: Hélène et le cheval de Troie on Japan paper (attached the photos).

Do you notice anything wrong? Does anyone has the description from the catalogue (in English) to share please?

Also, I would like to know who is the publisher (unfortunately Van Ham did not provide this info) so I can submit the artwork for further info.

Thanks in advance
Ale

The Dalí "catalogue raisonné of etchings and mixed-media prints, 1924-1980" does not have much information it seems:
https://books.google.dk/books?id=lyrrAAAAMAAJ&q=salvador+dali+Helen+and+the+trojan+horse&dq=salvador+dali+Helen+and+the+trojan+horse&hl=da&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjQ26GarbLiAhUMjqQKHXzpC80Q6AEIKDAA

(Text attached as photo)
It says it is handcolored as is often the case with Dalí's etchings, accounting for differences between the copies. Your copy seems to have faded red colors, though. I don't know the meaning of "Euka".

More information here:
https://lockportstreetgallery.com/dali/salvador-dali-helen-and-the-trojan-horse/

Publisher: Galerie de Francony (according to the above - but it has the year as 1972, where the catalogue has 1974).

Regards,
Vietato

HI Vietato,
thank you for your valuable information, as usual!

I managed to get the scanned copy of CR...unfortunately in German (attached)

I don't know Eukaryote meaning too! and also I'm not sure if Galerie de Francony is the same publisher or a more modern art gallery in Paris with the name name.

Do you think the condition (especially the fade in red color) will affect a lot the value?

Regards
ale

The German catalogue no. 715 states that Euka is the publisher (apparently not to be found on the internet).

714 translated:
Hélène et le cheval de Troie
Helen and the Trojan horse
Drypoint etching with aquatint, colored.
Euka
Printer unknown

a) 1-250 on Arches
b) I-C on Japan

The editions a and b were distributed by the Editions de Francony. According to their information, there are an additional 100 copies.
(See also documentation p. 262)

This seller mentions the apricot color as being painted by Dalí:
https://www.icollector.com/DALI-Hand-Colored-Etching-Surrealism_i5324395
- but I very much doubt that. It will most often be done be assistants.

The faded colors subtracts somewhat from the price, depending on how easily you can come across a perfect sample. I don't think it is a big deal in this case.

Regards,
Vietato

PS. Use Google translate for German text - as I did :-)
