Salvador Dali was one of the most famous artists of the 20th century - and also one of its greatest eccentrics. Renowned for his striking and provocative work, as well as his unconventional behaviour, he attracted admiration and controversy in equal measure. This stunning volume showcases more than 90 of Dali's most famous works in magnificent giant size. Arranged chronologically to reflect Dali's artistic development from ambitious young painter to reclusive artist, the images include the sensational Persistence of Memory; the finely detailed Metamorphosis of Narcissus; and his later works, such as the arresting image of Christ of St John of the Cross and The Hallucinogenic Toreador. Here too are numerous depictions of his muse and wife, Gala; and his most well-known sculptures, including Lobster Telephone and Retrospective Bust of a Woman; as well as evocative black-and-white photographs of the artist throughout his life. Accompanying the images is art historian Rachel Barnes's lively and entertaining account of Dali's life and artistic style and techniques, shedding light on the artist's influences and inspirations. Ideal for Dali enthusiasts and art lovers, these spectacular giant-size reproductions and insightful commentary reveal the extraordinary life and works of this gifted, controversial and inimitable artist.
