Salvador Dali: The Early Years

Salvador Dali: The Early Years

by SalvadorDali (Author)


This volume explores Salvador Dali's work. It focusses on his art up to about 1930, aiming to throw light on Dali, and how greatly his later images, obsessions and attitudes were rooted in his youthful experiences in Catalonia and Spain. The text includes essays by well-known writers on Dali, Surrealism and cultural life in Spain at the time Dali was painting. His upbringing in Figueres and Cadaques, his student years in Madrid, his relationship with the poet Federico Garcia Lorca and his collaboration with the film-maker Bunuel, the critical reception of his work, and his connection to the French Surrealists before 1930 are all discussed.
