Dalí: master of fantasies
Salvador Dalm (19041988) was one of the most popular and most visible artists of the last century, known for his provocative works and his larger-than-life personality. He created an astoundingly diverse body of work, including paintings, drawings, prints, book illustration, films, and stage sets. Whatever the medium, his works were filled with dreamlike, fetishistic images rendered in a precise, hyperrealist style. In this fascinating account, art historian Jean-Louis Gaillemin focuses on the intimate details of Dalm's life, especially his intense relationship with his longtime partner Gala, and how his psychological views and state of mind influenced his work.
