Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the 20th century's true eccentrics and exhibitionists. One of the first to apply Freud's teachings to the art of painting, Dalí approached the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination. Dalí presents the infamous surrealist in his own words and in full color, including every one of Dalí’s paintings, half of which have rarely been seen. His provocative imagery is all here, from the soft watches to the notorious burning giraffe. Robert Descharnes, a friend for over 30 years, analyzes both man and myth.
