Item description for Salvador Dali (Living Art) by Christiane Weidemann...
On canvas and in person--Salvador Dali's weird, captivating and complicated world.
It is hard to tell what is more fascinating: Dali's brilliant, hallucinatory art or the eccentric life he led. This book considers both the works and the man. Dali's penchant for self-promotion; his partnership with his wife and muse, Gala; and his contentious relationship with artists of the Surrealist movement are examined alongside vibrant reproductions of some of the most dazzling paintings of the twentieth century. The book also explores Dali's rich legacy, which includes brilliant works in virtually all forms of media. The result is a true marriage of life and art, and an insightful look into the mysteries of fame and creative genius.
