In the “Walpurgis Night”, brilliantly illustrated by Dali, the various scenes appear within a magic circle, in a chiaroscuro whose acme is most likely the stunning portrait of “Faust Lisant”, evocative of Rembrandt’s etchings. Alchemical signs, formed by Dali’s inverted signature, add an esoteric dimension to this exceptional interpretation of Goethe’s “Faust”.
