You have to read the acknowledgments to see the international importance of this exhibition.
It was a long time ago since you could see together paintings as important as The Persistance of Memory, Morphological Echo, the first and final versions of Madonna of PortLligat, the Christ of Saint John of the Cross, Assumpta Corpuscularia Lapislazulina, the Maximum Speed of Raphael's Madonna, The paranoiac-critical study of Vermeer's Lacemaker, The Ecumenical Council, Santiago El Grande, Portrait of my Dead Brother, etc.
There were also many other items suchs as watercolors (one of the Divine Comedy), drawings, jewels, lithographs, etchings, movies, sculptures, magazines, Phillipe Halsman's photographs, etc.
It is a great show and if you can't see it "on the flesh", please, pleeeease buy this catalog.

(BTW it's printed in Italy)
It's awesome to see that he created so many paintings, but some of his most famous ones really could have been printed bigger in the book.
Also, I don't know if it was only in my copy, but some pages had no text, the story just stopped mid-sentence on one page and another chapter began a few pages later. Also on these blank pages, the paintings were there, but not captions to them. A shame, but nonetheless it's a wonderful book.
Dali's polarizing art and lifestyle prompted extreme reactions from art critics, essayists, and propagandists. Fortunately, this set contains excellent information and important insights from Dali-insider Robert Descharnes. Descharnes presents biographical facts and writing excerpts in a coherent overview of Dali's artistic development.
This set contains a good number of drawings. Some are reprinted from the book "50 Secrets of Magic Craftsmanship" by Salvador Dali, but I found many of them to be new. The drawings include studies and outlines for paintings, rarely seen erotic pieces, and illustrations for books.
For an excellent single-volume treatment of Dali by the same authors, I recommend "Dali" by Robert Descharnes (Author), Gilles Beret (Contributor) ISBN-10: 3822802980.
