Perhaps the best-known artist of the international Surrealist
movement, Salvador Dali (1904-1989) transformed his dreams and
personal obsessions into some of the most original and arresting
images of the 20th century. While the Surrealist works from his
early years are widely known and admired, Dali's controversial late
works--often inspired by science and religion--have been given a
different reception. In this important book, experts provide a
revisionist account of the last five decades of the artist's
"The Dali Renaissance" explores a wide range of topics from this
period, including the artist's fascination with religion and
popular culture, his "Nuclear Mysticism" lecture tour of the
midwestern United States, and his influence on film, photography,
design, and fashion. Based on an international symposium held at
the Philadelphia Museum of Art, the volume also features an
enlightening discussion between two of Dali's former companions,
Ultra Violet and Amanda Lear, that provides a glimpse into his
personal life and working methods.
