It’s not clear whether Dali was a genius or a mad man, or both, as his art transcends anything else on the market at the time. This pair of large coffee table books goes through his life with many many pictures of his work.

Welcome to the daliverse. This book contains so many pictures that now I am suprised if I see any Dali artwork I can not recognize.
