Dali The Paintings is a comprehensive collection of the paintings of Salvador Dali. Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret, through years of research, located all the paintings of this highly prolific artist. Many of the works had been inaccessible for years. So many, in fact, that almost half the illustrations in this book had rarely been seen in public.
Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) was one of the century’s greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting. He approached the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination. Picasso called Dalí “an outboard motor that’s always running.” This compilation of his paintings supports that description.
