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.

He evolved throughout his career like a child who sees something shining and is drawn to it. Dali was influenced not only by the people who surrounded him but other artists, scientists, politicians and figures from his reading. He was also influenced by World events and in par

Quite a remarkable opus! One of the best bios on Dali, he's portrayed as a genius and as a mad man alike. With fine detail as well as an excellent bibliography, this work is worth for collection and for a careful study on the subject. Two thumps up!
Very interesting. I'm not sure if this is the exact book I read on him. I learned that (in my opinion) he was a bit of a creeper. I had no idea he had a foot and food fetish. He also loves painting genitalia...At least he's good at it?
Is there anything I could say after reading the work of one of the greatest men to set foot on this earth?

I really enjoyed this book. Dali is one of my favourite painters and his surreal work is truly spectacular.

I fell in love with Dali's work when I went to the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL after a work convention. This book shows some work I had not seen before. My favorite: The Hallucinogenic Toreador - so many different levels to it. I was fascinated by it on the tour. I would never have noticed everything without the guide.

I know he's not everyone's cup of tea, but I used to live in St. Pete's where they have the museum. It was the best museum we had down there, so what can I tell you. Plus, I rather like the idea that he might really be Adrian Brody.
Una gran cantidad de información infaltable para cualquiera que esté interesado en la vida de este genio del arte.
A lot of book(s). Two books weigh a total of 14 pounds. But, if you love Dali's art as I do, these books are the next best thing to visiting the museum in St. Petersburg.
Detailed, comprehensive biography with excellent reproductions of some amazing paintings. Holy crap, what a talented original [or is it an original talent].

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.
