Background: Conquest of Cosmos Saturnian Giraffe is from a series of 12 original engravings and lithographs. The 12 prints for Cosmos I & II were all made in 1974, but because it woud have been difficult to find buyers for so many prints at the same time, only 6 were marketed that year as Cosmos I. The other six were offered in 1977 as Cosmos II.

Dali worked extensively in the graphic arts producing many etchings and lithographs. His early work in printmaking is equal in quality to his important paintings.

Opinion: The increasing scarcity of Dali's dreamlike artworks makes them very desirable. The Wall Street Journal reported four years ago: "Over the past five years, the average price paid at auction for a late-period Dali has risen from $108,634 to just over $1 million, according to Art Research Technologies, a New York-based consulting firm that tracks auction prices."

Aware of Salvador Dali’s ever increasing popularity; museums are aggressively buying up available paintings. Fine paintings like "The Fantastic Voyage" rarely become available.

While no one can predict the future, Salvador Dali's art, as it has spectacularly shown in the past, may prove to be an extremely lucrative investment.

Price: £8250. (Exchange rates - will open in a new page)
