The Oglethorpe Museum was recently given 14 Salvador Dali lithographs by an anonymous doner. Here is an article from Reporter Newspaper.
I have been the framer for the Museum for many years, having worked with curator Lloyd Nick on many shows. I have been a lifelong fan of Dali since I discovered his work as a teenager, so it was not only an honer to frame these 14 works but very personally satisfying. We decided to give the frames for the the Dalis a contemporary yet very Spanish look. We used a combination of water-guilded gold mouldings and large old style Spanish mouldings. Three of the pieces depicted cards of a Tarot deck that Dali did in the 1980′s. Temperance, The Hanged Man and The Tower. We floated the Tarot prints on black mats to give a very dramatic effect.
