Synopsis: Salvador Dali, the Spanish Surrealist painter was a highly-skilled draughtsman made famous by his striking and bizarre images. His most popular work, The Persistence of Memory, (1931) led him to critical acclaim, however, he was also well-known for his work in sculpture, photography, fashion, film and books. He was an eccentric artist whom was often known for his attention-seeking antics as he was for his work. Besides his 1931 The Persistence of Memory, Dalis other most important and influential works include Face of Mae West, Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War), Swans Reflecting Elephants, Ballerina in a Deaths Head, and The Temptation of St Anthony. The Persistence of Memory is probably one of Dalis most recognizable works, which first introduced the image of soft melting pocket watches and his theory of softness and hardness which was central to his thinking during his Freudian phase in the early 1930s. Animals also featured widely in Dalis work including the elephant, lobster, and rhinoceros, which he believed symbolized the Virgin Mary. Dali found his favored muse and lifelong companion, Gala, early in his life. She was to be an inspiration in many of his works and was instrumental in bringing Dali the worldwide recognition he deserved, both during his lifetime and into the 21st century. Besides his 1931 The Persistence of Memory, Dalis other most important and influential works include Face of Mae West, Soft Construction with Boiled Beans (Premonition of Civil War), Swans Reflecting Elephants, Ballerina in a Deaths Head, and The Temptation of St Anthony.

From School Library Journal: Gr 6-10-Excellent, in-depth examinations of celebrated painters. Each of these titles opens with a context-setting introduction, followed by a few pages of biography, and then moves on to a lengthy section detailing major works, along with technical analysis and biographical and historical background. All of the books are lavishly illustrated with large reproductions of the works, photographs of the artists, and relevant artifacts of their respective periods and cultures. The authors are adept at establishing in simple terms the social and aesthetic implications of the artists' bold choices. A final chapter in each book includes information on where to find museums displaying the paintings. The biographical sections are surprisingly brief, though more details are supplied in the artwork sections. VERDICT These outstanding introductions are well suited for both research and ready reference.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
