The marvellous bust of Salvador Dalí by Arno Breker is the main motive on the Dalí-Stamp to honour the great European painter on the occasion of his 100th birthday in 2004.
New York (bpb) The best Dalí stamp on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of Salvador Dalí was published by the Postmaster of Bulgaria. The stamp shows the only authentic portrait of the master, created by his friend Arno Breker. The stamp designer used as background a painting of Salvador Dalí, registered at the Gala Salvador Dalí Foundation in Figueras, Spain.
This fascinating stamp has the size of 65 x 85 millimetres. The first day cover (114 x 200 millimetres) is decorated with an early Dalí drawing "The lovers" and the red signature "Salvador Dalí".
The Dalí stamp is strictly limited to an edition of 13,000. Therefore, its value for collectors is high. The stamp and the first day cover are not only an attraction for philatelists, but also for all who love the surrealistic art of Dalí. The first day cover also can be framed to hang it on the wall in a living room or office.
The US Museum of European Art (firstname.lastname@example.org) and the European Art Foundation (Marco-VG@gmx.de) have a limited quantity of the stamps and the first day cover of 100 numbered exemplars only for sale. Prices and details on request.
The Dalí stamps are not yet listed at the American Philatelic Society, the Royal Philatelic Society of Canada or other philatelic organisations. It is reported that the stamps are already sold out in the post offices. The various Dalí objects became very fast a precious collectors' item.
