9780714834115: Dali A&I (Art and Ideas)

One of the best-known and most visually influential artists of the 20th century, Salvadore Dali achieved fame on an international scale as both painter and celebrity. Bridging the gap between high art and popular culture, he created in his Surrealist works a startling imagery that moved freely into the Freudian world of the subconcious - and which has subsequently been widely adopted by media and advertising.

About the Author:

Radford writes and lectures widely on the links between art, fashion and ideology. He teaches Art History at Winchester School of Art, University of Southampton.

Review:

"This book condenses Dali's career into a highly readable narrative, with a judicious mixture of historical and biographical facts, entertaining autobiographical detail and critical comment on the artist's creative output."-Roger Cardinal, School of Drama, Film and Visual Arts, University of Kent, Canterbury On the Art & Ideas series "Art & Ideas has broken new ground in making accessible authoritative views on periods, movements and concepts in art. As a series it represents a real advance in publishing."-Sir Nicholas Serota, Director, Tate London "The format is wonderful and offers what had long been missing in academic studies: usable manuals for specific themes or periods... I am definitely not alone in welcoming Art & Ideas as a precious set of teaching tools."-Joachim Pissarro, Yale University "Phaidon's series may prove to be the pick of the crop. It boasts expert but undogmatic texts and a wealth of illustrations."-The Sunday Telegraph
