2674 ROMANIA (Prahova) - Welcome into my Brain

2674 Salvador Dali - The Three-Cornered Hat, etching #3

Under this heading were exhibited between July 22 and October 4, 2015, at Cantacuzino Castle in Buşteni, more than 200 works by Salvador Dalí (1904-1989), coming from private collections. Among them were xylography, lithographs and etchings on metal created to illustrate masterpieces of world literature (Divine Comedy, The Old Man and the Sea, Dreams of Pantagruel, The Three-Cornered Hat) and 78 engravings designed a set of Tarot cards.

The Three-Cornered Hat (El Sombrero de Tres Picos) is a novel published in 1874 by the Spanish novelist Pedro Antonio de Alarcón y Ariza (1833-1891). The story is an adaptation of a popular tradition and provides a lively picture of village life in Alarcón's native region of Andalusia. Dalí accomplished 20 colour wood engravings to illustrate The Three-Cornered Hat for the exclusive Nouveau Cercle Parisien du Livre book club, in 1959.

About the stamp
The stamp, depicting the Romanian actor Mircea Albulescu (1934-2016), is part of the series Golden Stars of Stage and Screen, about which I wrote here.
