Dalí Works Returned to Waiter

A cab driver returned the forgotten Salvador Dalí works left in a taxi by a Spanish waiter of Barcelona. The works were valued at around $20,000 dollars and included Dali’s 1966 illustrated version of Alice in Wonderland.

The driver put an ad in the local press to find the owner. The waiter is Sebastia Verdaguer and stated, “He didn’t think the affair was that important. He saw the engravings bore Dali’s signature but he didn’t know if they were originals and had no idea of their value.”

On May 2004 Spain will celebrate the centennial of the birth of Salvador Dalí with a series of exhibitions including lesser known works by the artist.
