A genius with a right to indulge in whatever lunacy popped into his head Picasso called Dal#65533; "an outboard motor that's always running." Dal#65533; thought himself a genius with a right to indulge in whatever lunacy popped into his head.

Painter, sculptor, writer and film maker, Salvador Dal#65533; (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. Dal#65533; brought extraordinary sensitivity, imagination and concern for precision to bear upon submerged levels of consciousness.

This lively biography presents the infamous Surrealist Dal#65533; in full colour and in his own words. His provocative ideas are all here, from the soft watches to the notorious burning giraffe. And the fantastic phenomenon that was Salvador Dal#65533; is grasped entire and placed in his various contexts. About the Series:
