The Seminal Surrealist

The essential reference on Salvador Dalí’s painted oeuvre

At the age of six, Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) wanted to be a cook. At the age of seven, he wanted to be Napoleon. “Since then,” he later said, “my ambition has steadily grown, and my megalomania with it. Now I want only to be Salvador Dalí, I have no greater wish.” Throughout his life, Dalí was out to become Dalí: that is, one of the most significant artists and eccentrics of the 20th century.

This weighty volume is the most complete study of Dalí’s painted works ever published. After years of research, Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret located painted works by the master that had been inaccessible for years—so many, in fact, that almost half the featured illustrations appear in public for the first time in this book.

More than a catalogue raisonné, this book contextualizes Dalí’s oeuvre and its meanings by examining contemporary documents, from writings and drawings to material from other facets of his work, including ballet, cinema, fashion, advertising, and objets d’art

The study is divided into two parts: the first examines Dalí’s beginnings as an unknown artist. We witness how the young Dalí deployed all the isms—Impressionism, Pointillism, Cubism, Fauvism, Purism and Futurism—with playful mastery, and how he would borrow from prevailing trends before ridiculing and abandoning them. The second part unveils the conclusions of Dalí’s lifelong inquiries, as well as the great legacy he left in works such as Tuna Fishing (1966/67) or Hallucinogenic Toreador (1970). It includes previously unpublished homages to Velázquez or Michelangelo, painted to the same end as the variations on past masters done by his contemporary, Picasso.

We discover how, motivated by the desire to tease out the secrets of great works and become a Velázquez of the mid-20th century, Dalí became Dalí.

Très beau livre, reproductions de grande qualité

Essential for art lovers

Carlos H.,28 ottobre 2021
I learned a lot about Dalí in particular and art in general with this book, I was surprised by how extensive it is.

Incredible

Jerry,28 ottobre 2021
This book is great! It contains so much material that I have not seen before. I really appreciated how extensive it is and that is not limited to his best work or most famous work. This book includes pieces from his entire life. Ordered in a year by year chronology, you are able to see how Dali's voice as an artist started, grew and developed. I think this book humanized Dali instead of only portraying him as the eccentric creative genius he is known for. Love it!

Excellent book about an awesome artist
