Delight in Discovery
The Dali of printmaking
On the phone, the voice is joyful; the melodious accent titillates the ear. I am speaking with Christine Argillet, daughter of Pierre Argillet, collector, highly talented publisher and printer of Salvador Dali’s major etchings. The conversation is filled with anecdotes and complicit laughter stemming from a shared common passion for the works of the Master, with whom she was well acquainted and interacted on a daily basis till she turned seventeen.
