Salvador Dalâi : 1904-1989
Part of the Bibliotheca universalis series
Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, Salvador Dali (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. This publication presents the artist's painted oeuvre.
After many years of research, Robert Descharnes and Gilles Neret finally located the paintings of this highly prolific artist.
Many of the works had been inaccessible for years-in fact so many that almost half the illustrations in this book had rarely been seen in public. About the seriesBibliotheca Universalis - Compact cultural companions celebrating the eclectic TASCHEN universe!
