About this title:
Synopsis:
Charts the course of Salvador Dali's career, providing an account of his conquest of the irrational - from the famous soft watches, "Burning Giraffe" and "Venus de Milo with Drawers" (which marked his entry into the Freudian realms of the unconscious), to the atomic mysticism of his later work.

From the Publisher:
Almost half Dalí's illustrations in this book have rarely been seen

This publication presents in 2 volumes in a box the entire painted oeuvre of Salvador Dalí (1904-1989). 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 have rarely been seen.


From the Back Cover:
Turning away from the powerful Cubist influence of fellow painter Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dalí incorporated the hallucinatory qualities of Surrealism in his paintings and went on to become one of the 20th century's most famous artists.
The melting clocks in his Persistence of Memory are among the most recognizable images in modern art. That well-known work appears here in sticker format along with 15 other scrupulously reproduced works by the Spanish artist, among them The Visage of War, Figure at a Window, The Enigma of Desire, and Surrealist Poster.
Original Dover (2000) publication.
