Salvador Dali.

Caws, Mary Ann.

Picture of Salvador Dali.
Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali i Domènech, Marquis of Púbol, was one of the best known artists of the twentieth century. He was a force unto himself, an icon of outrageousness, artistic brilliance, eccentricity, and unmistakeable style. This is a sharply written account of his intensely original life and work, both writings and art.

Salvador Domingo Felipe Jacinto Dali y Domenech, Marquis of Pubol, was born in Catalonia on May 11, 1904, and died on January 23, 1989. Best known as a surrealist painter, his artistic output also included film, sculpture, photography and writing. Dali is also notorious for his eccentric behaviour and his involvement with the Dada movement, which often drew more attention to himself than his art. In this new narrative exploration of Salvador Dali, highly respected art and literary historian Mary Ann Caws surveys the life and work of one of the most fascinating and colourful figures in the history of art.
