This authoritative account of the life and work of Salvador Dalí, one of the most recognizable artists of the twentieth century, is revised and updated with color illustrations throughout.


In this revised and updated edition of art historian Dawn Ades’s seminal study of Salvador Dalí, based on interviews with the artist, Ades examines what accounts for Dalí’s popularity, exploring such issues as the accessibility of his imagery and his talent as a self-publicist. This book reconsiders the Dalí phenomenon, from his early years and the development of his technique and style to his relationship with the surrealists, his exploitation of Freudian ideas, and the image that he created of himself as the mad genius artist.


This new edition of Dalí is an accessible and vibrantly illustrated introduction to one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century.



Dawn Ades is a professor emerita of the history and theory of art at the University of Essex. She has written extensively on Dada, Surrealism, photography, and women artists, among other topics. Her many books also include Dalí and, with Neil Cox and David Hopkins, Marcel Duchamp, both in the World of Art series.
