Concentrating solely on the art, this impressive study chronicles the lengthy career of the controversial Catalan painter Salvador Dali (1904-89). The major portion of the book is devoted to over 150 illustrations, most in color, of the oil paintings, watercolors, and drawings from the Morse Collection of the Dali Museum, in St. Petersburg, Florida. The earlier works show the influences of Impressionism, Cubism, and Surrealism; religious and historical themes occur frequently, and the haunting representations of hallucinatory and realistic images set against bleak landscapes are fascinating and disturbing. Art scholar Robert S. Lubar succinctly analyzes Dali's unique style and its relationship with Modernism. A foreword by art collector A. Reynolds Morse, notes, and chronology complete the volume. This broad overview attests to Dali's greatness and is an excellent choice for all collections.
