  • How can I put thisDali has always fascinated and repelled me at the same time his talents were truly unique but the use of his art and people as a means to an end has always troubled me But if he were not constituted the way he was would he have been Dali This book gives you a very good Dali foundation to build upon as you struggle with your own Dali questions.


  • This was an interestingly put together quick view of The Dal It is always somewhat alarming or disappointing when people I admire turn out to be swine , but I m drawn like a moth to flame Got some items to add to my to read list, so that is the best part of all Enjoyed the mix of text, art works from various artists, and illustrations that supported the text concept.3.5 5 stars.Thanks Caroline and Ben


  • A concise and palatable introduction to the madness, narcissism and surreal talent of this iconic, celebrity artist Ingram balances text and imagery wonderfully, never making it too word heavy, this achievement means that this is an incredibly accessible read for just about anyone This is Dali makes for a great starting point for those who are new to this artist s peculiar history and it doubles as a lovely addition to any enthusiast s collection I absolutely adored it, and the edition itself is [...]


  • Salvador Dali was an eccentric, an unconventional man both in his art and personal life style Every morning upon awakening, I experience a supreme pleasure that of being Salvador Dali, and I ask myself, wonderstruck, what prodigious thing will he do today, this Salvador Dali His capriciousness and exhibitionism began in his childhood The first in the family to be named Salvador was his elder brother who had died just before he turned two, so Dali was haunted by his brother s memory Although ther [...]

  • Salvador Dali s own words characterize him best Basically, I am a swine This was said to his girlfriend in later years when Dali describes sitting in his car, watching Gala his wife, 10 years his senior, and still his wife at the time of the girlfriend change a tyre in the pouring rain 35 We all know that one mustseparate the art from the artist, but Dali did his narcissistic best to prevent people from even trying He enjoyed, without the least twinge of conscious, being a megalomaniac He was so [...]


  • Ingram writes clear and replaced my superficial, pop culture notion of crazy surrealist Dali with a not much nuanced portrait Rae s full page, vibrant info graphics complement Dali s bombast while still biographizing especially the page on his palace.This book does not survey Dali s life work but includes thoughtful analysis of select maybe lesser known pieces.I cannot tell whether the consistent wording of Child King demanded is a correct interpretation of Dali throughout his life He seems sta [...]


  • A brief 80 pages with lots of illustrations bio of Dali Not bad, but the reproductions of his work were too small for me to see the things they talked about in the text, even with reading glasses Chances are that anyone interested in Dali knows everything in this book already, so I m not really sure who the target audience is I knew half of it, and I m not by any means an art history maven.


  • A very well presented and designed book It made reading about a self absorbed narcissist who poached his wife from another man and made her change his tyre in the rain not as jarring as it might seem.The narrative is made up of easily readable chunks of text and colourful, quirky illustrations Several of Dali s important works are also showcased, including Persistence Of Memory , whose background is explained Not once does the tone come across as upper class, art snob or highbrow.



  • A compact and interesting graphic biography of Dali that will be most appreciated by those who are already familiar with his work and his bizarre life story It gives the essentials about this extreme narcissist and whets your appetite for .


  • Very cool way to get an overview of Dali s life and works It will definitely prompt those that are interested to explore his life and works further.

  • A concise introduction to the life and times of Dali I feel that some vital facts, whilst mentioned, were not elaborated on and left you having to research further if you wanted to fill in the gaps The illustrations emphasised parts of the text.I actually struggled to finish the book not because it was poorly written but because I didn t realise what a truly awful selfish man Dali was.




  • The book tells about the artist s life in a very light way The illustrations are superb and they contribute to the narrative as much as the story itself.


  • This is a great introduction to the famous artist The book is a little disjointed, though while oversimplified for adults, it s still a little bit too complex for most children to grasp I was really hoping this would be graphic novel, but it reads instead as a dumbed down biography with some comics inserted in between It s still engaging, but I d have been interested to see this drawn as a graphic novel with surrealist images throughout Again, this is dark, so if you re worried about what your [...]


  • This is an illustrated biography of Salvador Dali, which depicts the highlights of his personality and art It delves into the narcissism and megalomania that plagued Dali throughout his entire life It s by no means an exhaustive history biography, but it is entertaining and the illustrations are well done.
