Art Description

Drawing: Ink, Stencil, Acrylic and Gouache on Paper.

Schiaparelli/Dali designed the iconic “Lobster Dress” which debuted in Schiaparelli’s Summer/Fall 1937 Collection. The Lobster dress is a simple white silk evening dress with a crimson waistband featuring a large lobster painted (by Dali) onto the skirt. It is rumored that Dali wanted to apply real mayonnaise to the lobster on the dress but that Schiaparelli objected.

This zen chicken of the sea is inspired by Elsa Schiaparelli's famous lobster dress and my appreciation of the beach and high fashion.

12 x 16 inches on hot pressed 140 lb watercolor paper.
