Vermeer La Lettre is one of six graphics from the series Changes in Great Masterpieces published by Sidney Lucas, 1974. Master Dali has given us a concept most original and provocative. His contention is that we “look” but actually do not “see” all the details in a work of art. For this reason Dali has honored six great paintings by selecting their work on which he has made certain changes to tantalize the viewer into studying and comparing the original with his graphic work; a facsimile of the original painting appears on the graphic for this purpose. To further give us an example of Dalinean wit, he has added a “remark” on each graphic in the form of an original lithograph relating to the actual subject. A superb edition. La Lettre is a limited edition lithograph signed in pencil by the artist and is in excellent condition.
