Born in Catalonia, Spain (1904) - (sculptor, painter, photographer) Salvador Dali was, without question, a highly-imaginative and extravagantly flamboyant individual whose often-bizarre, surrealistic artwork was clearly influenced by the Renaissance masters.

Through stills & text - This impressive volume not only explores the "dream-like" paintings of Dali's, but it also takes a close-up look at his irrepressible personality, too.

Professionally compiled by Paul Moorhouse - This book introduces Dali's technical skill to the curios reader, as well as closely scrutinizes his provocative compositions and challenging themes of death, decay, and eroticism.

*Note* - In 1989 - Salvador Dali (84 at the time) died of heart failure.
