It alone justifies a catalog of the genuine Dalí graphics that constitute such a vital part of his mature oeuvre… A large portion of Dalí graphics consists of lithographic reproductions of original watercolors or gouaches. These were made on specific commissions from publishers expressly for reproduction in carefully controlled limited editions supervised by Dalí" (Field, 4).
