Christopher Columbus - Dali Discovers America Suite - Eidtion: I XCVII/C (97 of 100) Christopher Columbus was a common theme in Dali’s work and the subject of a well-known early painting from 1959. At this time when the prints were being created, some Catalan historians claimed that Columbus was actually from Catalonia, not Italy, making the discovery of the America all the more relevant for Dalí, who was also from this region of Spain.
