Book Description
From the 1920's to the present, Spanish artist Salvador Dalí has maintained a reputation as the master magician of contemporary art. His alien and nightmarish images stimulate the viewer's imagination with extraordinary power attracting each new generation by the force of his hallucinogenic inspirations.

This publication is a delight and a revelation for aficionados of Dalí and offers new insights into his art and life. For those approaching Dali's work for the first time, it provides a perfect introduction to the cosmos as it is seen and interpreted by this self-proclaimed master of the "Paranoic-Critical."

Dalí's art was and remains controversial. It has infuriated and enchanted both layman and art critic but it remains undeniably memorable. His painting of soft watches is one of...

The Secret Life of Salvador Dali
Salvador Dali
0486274543
March 1993
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
This early autobiography, which takes Dalí through his late thirties, is as startling and unpredictable as his art. On its first publication, the reviewer of Books observed: "It is impossible not to admire this painter as writer . . . (Dalí) succeeds in doing exactly what he sets out to do . . . communicates the snobbishness, self-adoration, comedy, seriousness, fanaticism, in short the concept of life and the total picture of himself he sets out to portray." Superbly illustrated with over 80 photographs of Dalí and his works, and scores of Dalí drawings and sketches.

Salvador Dali

Paperback
·
 
Book Description

Maniac Eyeball is the third, final and most comprehensive volume of autobiography written by the late Salvador Dali. Maniac Eyeball contains the frank and uncensored confessions of Salvador Dali, from his childhood and first adolescent sexual experiences to his emergence as a painter, surrealist and eventually the most famous-and possibly richest-artist of modern times. These inspired tracts, covering art, love, sex, money, death, fame, science, his famous friends and enemies, and his extraordinary creative genius, reveal the intricate workings of Dali's mind to create not only an unparalleled autobiography, but also one of the key surrealist texts yet published.

Salvador Dali (1904–1989) entered the ranks of the Surrealists in 1929 with a series of iconoclastic paintings...

Book Description
Salvador Dalí is perhaps the most universally famous and popular artist of the twentieth century. On the occasion of the centenary of his birth comes the definitive retrospective of the artist's work from his early years. Dalí explores the development of the artist's technique and style, his relationship with the Surrealists, and his exploitation of Freudian ideas, as well as the image Dalí created of himself as the mad genius artist. This catalogue will be the major reference work for Dalí for decades to come. It includes illustrations of all the works loaned to the exhibition, as well as comparative illustrations and photographs.

The volume contains an introductory essay by Dawn Ades, with scholarly research incorporated in a "Dalí Dictionary," in the entries on individual...

Book Description
Man of many moustaches, of critical paranoia, of flies and ants, body parts held up by crutches, desert scapes windswept by perverse oases, melting clocks and faces, floating pomegranates, ever evolving metamorphoses. How ever to explain it all? How ever to explain Salvador Dalí?~This monograph on Dalí, originally published in 1975, was without doubt a landmark in the extensive bibliography on the artist. Two factors aided author Luis Romero in his endeavor: Firstly, the active support of Dalí himself, who helped in selecting the materials and who produced the series of original calligraphic texts that precede each of the sections in the book. And secondly, Romero's decades of long talks and conversations with the artist, a wealth of invaluable information without which this book could not have been...


Salvador Dali: Masterpieces from the Collection of the Salvador Dali Museum

September 1996
Hardcover

From Publishers Weekly
The Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, which had its origins in the collection of A. Reynolds Morse and Eleanor R. Morse, houses works that span Dali's (1904-1989) career, from the accomplished drawings and paintings of his youth to the surrealist paintings for which he gained fame and notoriety. In this slim volume, 40 of the museum's paintings are exquisitely reproduced in full color and accompanied by brief commentaries in which art historian Wach discusses their psychological content and their place in Dali's oeuvre. Wach's introduction, which doesn't treat Dali's work in depth but presents a readable overview of his career, outlines Dali's life and development as an artist, emphasizing his debt to Freud, the influence of his wife, Gala Eluard, his relationship to other surrealists and the...

Book Description
Astonishing creations by masters of the art, such as Escher, Dali, and Archimbolo; amazing visual trickery; and an illuminating foreword by the Pulitzer Prize--winning author Douglas R. Hofstadter make this 320-page, breathtaking collection the definitive book of optical illusions.

Rings of seahorses that seem to rotate on the page. Butterflies that transform right before your eyes into two warriors with their horses. A mosaic portrait of oceanographer Jacques Cousteau made from seashells. These dazzling and often playful artistic creations manipulate perspective so cleverly that they simply outwit our brains: we can’t just take a quick glance and turn away. They compel us to look once, twice, and over and over again, as we try to figure out exactly how the delightful trickery manages to fool our...

Great Paintings of the Western World

Hardcover

From Library Journal
Despite the grand title, this is a mindless compilation, subjective, as any would be, e.g., Thomas Hoving's Greatest Works of Art of Western Civilization (LJ 10/15/97). The three authors, who received advanced degrees in art hisotry from Columbia University or the Free University in Berlin, draw on the collections represented by Art Resource, a photo rights agency in New York, to present 300 fairly predictable "great" works. They don't actually limit themselves to paintings?ancient Roman mosaics and Greek vases and Renaissance frescoes are included?and the organization juxtaposes artists, nationalities, and schools of painting. The text is scant, uneven, and without thesis, and the images adequate. A big book, a short review: skip it.?Jack Perry Brown, Art Inst. of Chicago Lib.Copyright 1998 Reed Business...

From Booklist
Reviewed with Jill A. Laidlaw's Paul Klee.Gr. 5-8. A profusion of illustrations--photographs, art reproductions, news clippings--and information offered in sound bites make an attractive mix for students looking for biographical information. The Artists in Their Times series takes its emphasis on setting artists in their time seriously: a time line runs along the bottom of most pages, putting events of the artist's life in context. Anderson treats the oversize personality of the surrealist Dali well and does a fine job of illustrating how the surrealist vision has permeated the images and advertising now seen everywhere. He made the seminal surrealist film Un chien andalou with his friend Luis Bunuel; refused to take sides during the Spanish Civil War even when the Nationalists executed his friend, the poet...

Book Description

Antoni GaudÍ/Salvador DalÍ, the premiere book in the Duets series, brings together the work of these two artistic geniuses in order to present a rich comparative study. Essentially three volumes in one, a section on each artist presents a brief biography and an examination of some major works, with a third section that compares the images and ideas of the two artists. Although upon first glance one wouldn’t think to compare the architectural whimsy of GaudÍ with DalÍ’s dark visions, this book illuminates the similarities between them. Both men were great observers of nature, gifted with an uncommon sensitivity, and able to transcend the techniques of their respective disciplines to create unique designs that influenced and changed their fields forever.  Antoni...
