Descharnes’ excellent book is a Catalogue Raisonée which includes all the sculptures that were edited and cast during Dali’s lifetime. If a sculpture or the edition of the sculpture is not mentioned in this main reference book it is not considered real. All of I.A.R. Art Resources sculptures are mentioned in this book with the entire casting editions so that there is no discrepancy and so that there is full disclosure (please see pages 236 to 255).
Descharnes’ Catalogue Raisonée can be bought by the discerning public at the Dali Universe London, the Espace Dali Paris, and on the Descharnes website: http://www.eccart.com.
