Tristan and Isolde

Salvador Dalí
FRAMED Dimensions:
31" x 35"
Engraving with color
In pencil

In this engraving, Dalí carefully illustrates the moment after Tristan’s banishment by King Marc, (punishment for the affair with Isolde) when Tristan agrees to marry a different Isolde – Isolde of the White Hands. Dalí shows Isolde without detail and more like an inanimate object with no facial features and no arms or hands. Dalí expertly crafts this image to illustrate the unfulfilled nature of Tristan’s new marriage, as Isolde of the White Hands is merely a replacement for Tristan’s true love, the real Isolde. Dalí shows Tristan in the background hiding out in Beliagog’s cave lamenting his lost love.
