Dalí: The PaintingsBENEDICKT TASCHEN VERLAG
An essential overview of Salvador Dalí’s mind-melting ideas and seismic art historical impact, this compact publication reviews the master of Surrealism’s complete paintings, supplemented with sketches and ephemera. Presented by Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret, many of these works have rarely been seen before but epitomize Dalí’s depictions of the subconscious mind’s strange workings.
Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) was one of the century’s greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics—and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting, approaching the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination.
