Description

Salvador DaliĀ­ is one of the most popular artists in the world, known for his lavish lifestyle, gravity-defying mustache, and bizarre art. This book tells the story of Dali’s life and explores the meaning of his Surrealist paintings. It goes beyond his fine art practice and discusses his venture into the commercial world from his extravagant jewelry to his cheeky design for the Chupa Chups lollipops. Surrealism is revealed as a way of life; illustrations bring to life the extraordinary Dream Ball at the Coq Rouge, his fabulous home at Port Lligat, and his underwater fantasy at the World Fair’s Surrealist pavilion. Fun, provoking, and endlessly frustrating, Dali is brought under the spotlight.

Catherine Ingram brings her specialized knowledge to the book, while Andrew Rae, an award-winning illustrator, vividly portrays the text.
