“Chaise antifamélique – Chaise aux cuillères”

Salvador Dalí

The sculpture reproduced and originally presented, is a genuine creation by Salvador Dalí Domenech (1904-1989). This particular work, known as "The Spoon Chair," also referred to as the "Antifamélique Chair," dates back to 1970. Crafted in bronze with a rich brown patina, the sculpture measures 111.5 cm in height at the central spoon, 45 cm in width across the spoon ends, with a seat height of 48.5 cm at the front feet, a seat width of 41.5 cm, and a depth of 34.7 cm. It is notable for being the first proof cast by Bonvicini, unnumbered and lacking a visible stamp. This unique piece was exhibited at the Rotterdam Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen during the "Salvador Dalí" exhibition, which ran from November 21, 1970, to January 10, 1971, and is listed in the exhibition catalog under number 196. The sculpture encountered damage during transport and was subsequently restored by the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, ensuring the preservation of its right amount. The circa 1970 edition of this sculpture is distinguished by its bronze composition with a brown patina, signed "Dali" with numbering and the foundry stamp of Valsuani on the back of a backrest bar, measuring 111 x 44.6 x 37 cm. This work is cataloged under the archive reference 0 340
