一提到达利，您脑中第一个浮现的，绝对是他的招牌翘胡子。然而，除了翘胡子以外，您还对他了解多少？被毕加索比喻为「动个不停的马达」的达利，从小就自认是个天才，终日沉浸在他脑海中不断冒出的奇异念头，并且将这些念头转化为源源不绝的创作。身兼画家、雕塑家、作家和电影制作人等多重角色，达利的创作型态多元地惊人，并且将弗罗伊德的理论与他的创作结合，让观众置身于恍如梦境的奇幻想像之中。达利被喻为上个世纪最爱表现自我也最古怪的艺术家之一，所到之处必定引起广泛的争议，本书收录了他一生中既宏伟又怪诞的创作，带您一同探索他天马行空的奇想世界。本书的两位作者分别是Robert Descharnes和Gilles Néret。Robert Descharnes是一位摄影家和作家，对于历史上众多知名艺术家均有研究，他从1950年起开始研究达利的画作和文章，被认为是对达利了解最深的专家。Gilles Néret是一位历史学家、记者、作家，曾负责指导L'Œil和Connaissance des Arts等艺术评论，并于1981年获得Elie Faure Prize。
The seminal surrealist: Exploring Dalí's grandiose and grotesque oeuvre
Picasso called Dalí "an outboard motor that’s always running." Dalí thought himself a genius with a right to indulge in whatever lunacy popped into his head. Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the century’s greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics—and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting, approaching the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination.
This publication presents the entire painted oeuvre of Salvador Dalí. After many years of research, Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret finally located all the paintings of this highly prolific artist. Many of the works had been inaccessible for years—in fact so many that almost half the illustrations in this book had rarely been seen.
