Life and Works of Salvador Dali

Regular price $70.00On Sale $34.95

As a one of the foremost painters of the 20th century, Dalí overturned the art of the previous century and directed contemporary art toward its present incarnation. As irrational as he was Surrealist, this genius diverted objects from their original meanings, plunging them into the acid of his constantly churning imagination. A megalomaniac and an artist who above all understood the force of marketing and publicity, Dalí disorients his viewers in order to draw them into his world. On his canvasses, images and colours crash together to express and mock certain ideas, creating a subversive eroticism that taps into the subconscious of the avid voyeurs that we are. The author, Eric Shanes, explores the twists and turns of Dalí’s mad genius, commenting on the masterpieces of the painter so as to show the diversity and scope of his talent, leaving the reader blown away and bewitched by this Prince of Metamorphosis. This work opens up the sweet, mad universe of this genius and invites us to let ourselves be overcome..
