Description

Dalí, published by Thames & Hudson, is a vividly illustrated guide to one of the most important artists of the 20th century. Art historian Dawn Ades explores Dalí's early years, artistic friendships, the development of his technique and style, as well as his relationship with the surrealists and Freudian ideas. The book places Dalí's work in a social, historical and artistic context – presenting the creativity and art of this "mad genius" in a completely new way.

The book is part of Thames & Hudson's World of Art series. Each volume in the series focuses on a particular art form, artist, or genre.

Salvador Dalí was, and remains, among the most universally recognizable artists of the twentieth century. What accounts for this popularity? His excellence as an artist? Or his genius as a self-publicist?

In this searching text, partly based on interviews with the artist and fully revised, extended and updated for this edition, Dawn Ades considers the Dalí phenomenon. From his early years, his artistic friendships and the development of his technique and style, to his relationship with the Surrealists and exploitation of Freudian ideas, and on to his post-war paintings, this essential study places Dalí in social, historical and artistic context, and casts new light on the full range of his creativity.
