Hi Stuart,

I will be happy to help.

This is a later 20th century, 1980, re-strike of a print by Dali that was done originally in the mid 20th century.

It is a limited edition E.A., épreuve d'artiste which is the same as an AP, or Artist's Proof.

By 1980, Dali was known for signing blank sheets of paper for publishers to then add the print image; usually the artist and publisher first execute the print and then it is signed.

In addition, this is done in black and white; this image is usually done in color.

Value is 200GBP - 300GBP.
