Dali by Gilles Neret ENGLISH LANGUAGE


Painter, sculptor, writer, film maker, and all-round showman, Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was one of the twentieth century's greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics. One of the first artists to apply the insights of Freudian psychoanalysis to art, he is celebrated in particular for his surrealist practice, with such conceits as the melting clock or lobster telephone now hallmarks of the surrealist enterprise, and of modernism in general.

This book explores both the painting and the personality of Dali, introducing his technical skill as well as his provocative compositions and challenging themes of death, decay, and eroticism. Hardcover, 95 pages, Taschen Publishing, Author Gilles Neret.
