Description of this Electronic Book

Painter, designer, creator of bizarre objects, author and film maker, Dali became the most famous of the Surrealists. Bunuel, Lorca, Picasso and Breton all had a great influence on his career. Dali's film, An Andalusian Dog, produced with Bunuel, marked his official entry into the tightly-knit group of Parisian Surrealists, where he met Gala, the woman who became his lifelong companion and his source of inspiration. But his relationship soon deteriorated until his final rift with Andre Breton in 1939. Nevertheless Dali's art remained surrealist in its philosophy and expression and a prime example of his freshness, humour and exploration of the subconscious mind. Throughout his life, Dali was a genius at self-promotion, creating and maintaining his reputation as a mythical figure.
