Description

Salvador Dali­ was one of the most famous and also one of the most notorious artists of the twentieth century. While the centenary of Dali’s birth in 2004 was marked by a worldwide series of exhibitions, events and publications, no thorough investigation has taken place of the part played by film in Dali’s art. Dali­ & Film redresses this omission, presenting the major works that reflect Dali’s preoccupation with film and material related to the key film projects on which he worked. The book considers his collaboration with Luis Bunuel on the startling and highly controversial films, Un Chien Andalou and L’Age d’Or, his work with the Disney studios in Hollywood and with Alfred Hitchcock on the psychological thriller Spellbound. Dali­ & Film reveals the depth and persistence of Dali’s fascination with the medium, bringing a new dimension to our understanding of one of the great masters of twentieth-century art.
