A book about an intriguing artist-Salvador Dali at Home by DeBurca

Salvador Dali is a painter whose name you probably know; it is also possible that you do not fully understand him or his work. If that is true for you, this book provides a welcome opportunity to spend time with Dali and his family and to better understand the artist in context. The reader learns about Dali’s parents’ lives before he was born and the death of their earlier son whom they also named Salvador. The author speculates that, in this, may lie some of Dali’s duality. Dali’s home village, the places he lived, the teachers and the schools that influenced him are all acknowledged. There are quotes from Dali’s own writings along with excellent painterly and photographic illustrations. If you would like to spend time with this enigmatic, surrealist, I encourage you to take a look at this book.

Thank you NetGalley and Quarto for this excellent read.
