Dali A&i (Art & Ideas)by Robert Radford
Synopses & Reviews
This thought-provoking book re-evaluates the work of one of the best-known and most visually influential artists of the twentieth century. Robert Radford traces Dali's career from the crucial early years in Spain, to membership of the Surrealist group in 1930s Paris, then on to New York and Hollywood, where his purposefully extravagant behaviour made him a media star. The influential figures in his life — Federico Garcia Lorca, Luis Bunuel, his wife Gala — are introduced as the book explores Dali's diverse work as painter, writer, film-maker, illustrator, jewellery designer, myth-maker and performance artist.
An account of the Surrealist Salvadore Dali (1904-1989) whose life and art are set against the major developments of the 20th century, from Freudian psychology to World War II. Dali the painter, writer, film maker, illustrator, myth maker and performance artist are all given recognition.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 344-345) and index.
