To (...) Fond memory, Christmas 1944 .

Salvador Dali (1904 - 1989) was one of the most important surrealist artists in Spain, working as a visual artist, painter and sculptor. His work had several influences, such as Pablo Picasso, whom he met in Paris in 1929, in addition to the psychological works of Freud. In the 1930s, a period of great artistic production, Dali was part of the artistic movement known as surrealism. His works, with an extraordinary artistic quality, are almost always representations of a bizarre universe, such as the famous “Persistence of Memory” (1931), “Soft Construction with Cooked Peas: Premonition of the Civil War” (1936), “O Sono” (1937) or “Giraffe in Flames” (1937).

Maurice-Yves Sandoz (1892 - 1958) was a Swiss writer, specialized in fantasy literature, participated in the surrealist movement and admired Dali.

Dali personalized the book through this drawing made with a natural feather. He used black Chinese ink and red ink, representing a surrealist scene: a mother accompanied by a girl who points to a shooting star. At the time he created this drawing, during the Second World War, Salvador Dali was a refugee in the USA (since 1936).
