Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Life & Times series tells the stories of those who have shaped our present and our past, from Beethoven to Curie, Dietrich to Wilde. Offering expert, eminently readable texts by distinguished authors, these beautifully designed books feature chronologies, full indices, and striking color photos and illustrations. Together, they form a superb modern library of biography. Salvador Dali is the central figure in Surrealism; he is also one of the most eccentric artists of the modern age. A brilliant painter and draftsman, Dali described his style as "paranoid-critical." His life was marked by an early identity crisis, which led him to live a life that oscillated between exaggerated self-promotion and psychological self-destruction. Gala, his wife and muse, was to save him from a multitude of crises. Linde Silber, who teaches at the University of Cologne, offers a penetrating psychological analysis of Dali's life and work.

Synopsis:

Salvador Dali (1904-1989) was a Spanish painter, sculptor, graphic artist, and designer. Dali is one of the most important surrealistic painters and most eccentric of all artists of the Modern Age. His old-school techniques contrasted sharply with the other Surrealists, which led to his expulsion from the group. Death, decay and destruction are often repeated themes, influenced by Max Ernst, Giorgio de Chirico and the writing of Sigmund Freud. He described his style as a paranoid-critical method. Sexual and religious content is mixed with highly subjective and personal sensations. Dali's oeuvre extends beyond painting to include sculptures, films, jewelry, and glass objects. His life was marred by an early identity crisis, which lead to Dali living his life between exaggerated self-promotion and psychological self-destruction. Gala, his wife and muse, was always able to save him from the latest crisis. But it was Dali who invented himself as a commercial object.

Synopsis:

Salvador Dali is the central figure in surrealism and one of the most eccentric artists of the modern age. This is a psychologist's take on this extraordinary life.
