Salvador Dali was one of the most important artists of the twentieth century, as well as a cultural figure who challenged convention. He worked in an incredible array of different media, but is best-known for his Surrealist paintings, abound with Symbolism representing eroticism, death and decay, and demonstrating his fascination with Freud and later science and religion. This wonderful, heavily-illustrated book is a fascinating foray into the life and works of a man whose ability to reveal the gap between reality and illusion proved to be of huge influence to many artists, as well as popular culture in general.
