Painter, sculptor, writer, and filmmaker, Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) was one of the century's greatest exhibitionists and eccentrics-and was rewarded with fierce controversy wherever he went. He was one of the first to apply the insights of Sigmund Freud and psychoanalysis to the art of painting, approaching the subconscious with extraordinary sensitivity and imagination. This lively monograph presents the infamous Surrealist in full color and in his own words. His provocative imagery is all here, from the soft watches to the notorious burning giraffe. A friend of the artist for over thirty years, privy to the reality behind Dalí's public image, author Robert Descharnes is uniquely qualified to analyze Dalí-both the man and the myth

Diario de un genio by Salvador Dalí ( Book )
23 editions published between 1981 and 2005 in Spanish and Italian and held by 148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Revela a un Dalí cotidiano, de una extraordinaria autenticidad, una especie de retrato de Dali desnudo, contemplándose con sumo deleite en el espejo ante el cual él mismo se sitúa. Pero lo que salta a la vista es que Dalí no sólo ama su reflejo: presentes en él están las grandes cuestiones que agitan el pensamiento del genio que él jamás dudó que era. Como no teme las palabras, juega con ellas a placer, tiñéndolas de un irresistible humor. El retrato que hace de sus contemporáneos es fulgurante, a veces respetuoso, otras demoledor, siempre irónico. Y, por encima de todo ello, las peripecias espirituales de un artista que lleva la conciencia de su arte hasta el paroxismo y los límites de la locura --sin los cuales no hay auténtica aventura-- y una vida convertida ella misma en obra de arte, en continuo espectáculo, en incesante invención.--Desde la descripción de la editorial
