    LITERATURE:
    Robert & Nicolas Descharnes The Hard and the Soft. ed. Eccart. p. 165 ref. 415

    Winged Triton shows the body of a young man who evokes the movement of the sea and yet stands above the waves. In Greek mythology the gods used two winged messengers, Hermes and Triton.

    This is edition 7/8 and was cast by the Mibrosa Foundry in Spain c. 1972. In total there were 8 monumental examples produced in bronze plus 4 artist's proofs.

    This work is part of a series which belonged to the Clot collection. In the early 1970s the Catalan art lover Isidro Clot, a friend of Dalí, made an agreement with him to reproduce a series of sculptures in bronze. These had initially been sculpted by Dalí in soft wax in his summer house in Port Lligat in Spain. They were later cast, also in a monumental size, of which this is an example.
