Les songes drolatiques de Pantagruel by François Rabelais is a work that draws on ridicule and the grotesque to reflect the vices and shortcomings of the society and institutions of 16th-century France. In 1565, Richard Breton published an edition of this work in Paris, illustrating it with 120 engravings by François Desprez. Dalí copied 25 of them, adding in his own critical perception, as a perpetuation of Rabelais’ groundbreaking, satirical vision.
