“Return, Return Shulamite” is a poetic piece by Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) from the series Cantique des Cantiques (The Song of Songs of Solomon) from the year 1971. The Song of Songs is a book of the Old Testament. It is a collection of tender, partially explicit erotic love songs, in which the search and find, the longing and mutual praise of two lovers is described. Salvador Dalí interpreted the love songs in his series Cantique des Cantiques (composed of twelve illustrations in total) in a unique way.


The Spanish painter, graphic artist, sculptor, writer and designer Salvador Dalí (1904-1989 Figueres/Catalonia) was one of the leading representatives of Surrealism. His dreamy, influenced by the unconscious works are now in international museums and private collections.
