一提到達利，您腦中第一個浮現的，絕對是他的招牌翹鬍子。然而，除了翹鬍子以外，您還對他了解多少？被畢卡索比喻為「動個不停的馬達」的達利，從小就自認是個天才，終日沉浸在他腦海中不斷冒出的奇異念頭，並且將這些念頭轉化為源源不絕的創作。身兼畫家、雕塑家、作家和電影製作人等多重角色，達利的創作型態多元地驚人，並且將佛洛依德的理論與他的創作結合，讓觀眾置身於恍如夢境的奇幻想像之中。達利被喻為上個世紀最愛表現自我也最古怪的藝術家之一，所到之處必定引起廣泛的爭議，本書收錄了他一生中既宏偉又怪誕的創作，帶您一同探索他天馬行空的奇想世界。本書的兩位作者分別是Robert Descharnes和Gilles Néret。Robert Descharnes是一位攝影家和作家，對於歷史上眾多知名藝術家均有研究，他從1950年起開始研究達利的畫作和文章，被認為是對達利了解最深的專家。Gilles Néret是一位歷史學家、記者、作家，曾負責指導L'Œil和Connaissance des Arts等藝術評論，並於1981年獲得Elie Faure Prize。
The seminal surrealist: Exploring Dalí's grandiose and grotesque oeuvre
Picasso called Dalí "an outboard motor that’s always running." Dalí thought himself a genius with a right to indulge in whatever lunacy popped into his head. Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, 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, approaching the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination.
This publication presents the entire painted oeuvre of Salvador Dalí. After many years of research, Robert Descharnes and Gilles Néret finally located all the paintings of this highly prolific artist. Many of the works had been inaccessible for years—in fact so many that almost half the illustrations in this book had rarely been seen.
