Salvador Dali, best known for his Surrealist paintings of the 1930s and 1940s, created a number of lithographs based on popular culture. In this print, part of a suite of prints produced in 1971, he uses childhood memories of Currier & Ives prints as inspiration. The lithographs are based on authentic Currier & Ives images which Dali has superimposed with his own interpretations of the works.
