5.0 out of 5 stars The best of Dali, December 31, 2001
This review is from: Dali: The Paintings (Midi) (Paperback)
While it may be hard to get a hold of here at Amazon, "Dali: The Paintings" is worthwhile in searching for. I found it at a local bookstore and snatched it up immediately. It's a gorgeous book at nearly 800 pages. It has a black cover with a classic image of Dali and his mustache ends sticking straight up on the cover.
The real meat of the book is the paintings, drawings, and sketches. Over 1600 of them to be exact, almost all of them produced in vivid color. The book progresses year to year, giving a glimpse into Dali's changing techniques and styles. Thoughtful commentary by Robert Descharnes and Gilles Neret compliment the works of art.
Overall this is one of the best and most comprehensive Dali books around. A must for any serious Dali fan, or even the casual admirer.
