Description
Essential DALI SALVADOR DALI was without doubt one of the most inspirational and prolific artists of the twentieth century. Although his flirtation with Surrealism was relatively brief, he has become known as perhaps its greatest exponent, but it should be remembered that he also worked in many other genres. Dali's talents were prodigious; not only was he a painter of abstracts and portraits, a superb draughtsman, printer, and illustrator, he was also a sculptor, a maker of ceramics, jewelry and furniture, and a costume designer. Above all, he was a consummate self-publicist, his mustachioed personality at times in danger of transcending his ability as an artist. However, it is quite likely that without this element of exhibitionism, combined with a healthy lust for commercial success, Dali would not have been driven to achieve the international fame and status that he is now accorded. Essential Dali examines his work in detail, highlighting the progress of his career, and showing how he returned time and time again to subjects that both fascinated and intimidated him.
