Pierre Argillet was an avid collector of works by futurists, Dadaists and surrealists, and very early on, met the major artists of the 20th century. The publisher Pierre Argillet met Salvador Dali in his twenties that led to a life-long friendship and fruitful collaboration. They produced nearly 200 etchings. To name a few: la Mythologie (16 planches), le Christ, Sanit-Anne, L’Incantation. In 1974 the publisher and the artist parted their ways.
DALI: The Argillet Collection is being presented by Christine Argillet, the daughter of Pierre Argillet.
“DALI: The Argillet Collection is a tribute to the work of my father, Pierre Argillet, as an extraordinary publisher of the Dada and Surrealist group. This collection reflects a constant endeavor, a very personal archive of not only Dali’s finest etchings and tapestries, but an intimate glimpse into my family’s personal and cherished photos, films, anecdotes and memories of life with Dali and Gala." -Christine Argillet
