Autorretrato de Dal al desnudo, mirilla abierta al Dal cotidiano, DIARIO DE UN GENIO revela todo lo que uno desea saber de la intimidad de este artista. En el diario (que cubre los aos 1952-1964), DAL desvela sus descubrimientos pictricos y las grandes cuestiones que agitan su pensamiento, indispensables para acercarse a sus obras de arte, sin dejar por ello de rememorar otros episodios, como su precoz atraccin por Nietsche, su polmica ruptura con el grupo surrealista, o la manera en que mat a la autoridad paterna, encarnada en su caso por su padre y por Picasso.
This diary, which covers the period 1952-64, is a naked self-portrait, a look into everyday Dal that reveals all about the private life of this genius. In it Dal writes about his pictorial discoveries and about the big questions that invaded his thoughts, key to approaching his art.

More About Salvador Dali
Salvador Dali was born in 1904 in Figueres, Spain. In his teens, he exhibited his work at home and in the town's municipal theater before leaving for Madrid's Academy of Arts. In his last year there, he was expelled for announcing that none of the faculty was competent to judge his work. After moving to Paris, he befriended Pablo Picasso and Andre Breton, moved in with the woman who would become his wife of nearly 50 years (though she was Paul Eluard's wife when he met her) and began work on the paintings for which became best known, such as "The Persistence of Memory," which he described as "hand-painted dream photographs." Over the course of his career, he also made sculpture, designed jewelry, illustrated books and collaborated with filmmakers such as Bunuel and Hitchcock. The most famous of all the Surrealists, he died in Figueres in 1989.
