Montegrappa Salvador Dali Surrealista Fountain Pen - 18kt GoldAuthorized by the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalk Limited Edition of 38
Montegrappa's second Dalk pen, the Surrealista, has been inspired by the painting, Apparition of Face and Fruit Dish on a Beach (1938). The picture shows fruit on or in a fruit bowl shaped much like a wine glass. A human face, in a style that would appear again in one of Dalk's later works, is seen below the fruit, the handle of the fruit bowl acting as the bridge of the nose. The texture of the face is the sand of the beach, while on the sand is a cloth and a snapped rope.
The Surrealista Pens To realise the aesthetic of Apparition of Face and Fruit-Dish on a Beach in a pen, Montegrappa's artisans used pearl-grey resin with the trim representing the elongated face and the fruit, the cap graced with Dalk's signature. The packaging, too, recreates the face, opening to reveal the pen with the lips parting.
This project has been supervised and licensed by the Fundació Gala-Salvador Dalk, the cultural institution created by Salvador Dalk himself in 1983.
