Dalí by Dawn Ades( Book )

30 editions published between 1982 and 2004 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,085 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Salvador Dali is perhaps the most universally famous and popular twentieth-century artist. What accounts for this popularity? Is it his excellence as an artist? The accessibility of his imagery? Or his genius as a self-publicist? In a searching text, completely revised and updated in this edition to incorporate new information that has come to light since Dali's death in 1989, Dawn Ades considers some of the puzzling questions raised by the Dali phenomenon. His early years, the development of his technique and style, his relationship with the Surrealists, his exploitation of Freudian ideas, and the image which Dali created of himself as the mad genius artist are all explored in this brilliant and thought provoking study."--Jacket
Dalí's optical illusions by Salvador Dalí( Book )

13 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket

Marcel Duchamp by Dawn Ades( Book )

9 editions published in 1999 in English and Undetermined and held by 882 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genius, anti-artist, charlatan, guru, impostor? Since 1914 Marcel Duchamp has been called all these. No artist of the twentieth century has aroused more passion and controversy, nor exerted a greater influence on art, whose very nature Duchamp challenged and redefined as concept rather than product by questioning its traditionally privileged optical nature. At the same time, he never ceased to be engaged, openly or secretly, in provocative activities and works which transformed artmaking procedures. Written with the enthusiastic support of Duchamp's widow, this is one of the most original books ever written on this enigmatic artist, and challenges received ideas, misunderstanding and misinformation."--Jacket

Dalí by Gilles Néret( Book )

44 editions published in 2004 in 5 languages and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Salvador Dali is the central figure in surrealism and one of the most eccentric artists of the modern age. A brilliant painter and draughtsman, Dali described his style as 'paranoid-critical'. Sexual and religious content is mixed with highly subjective and personal sensations. Death, decay and destruction are repeated themes." "Dali's life was marred with an early identity crisis, which led to him living his life oscillating between exaggerated self-promotion and psychological self-destruction. Gala, his wife and muse, had to save him from many crises. Meanwhile, Dali invented himself as a commercial object."--Jacket

14 editions published between 1984 and 1986 in English and held by 754 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surrealist art : the Lindy and Edwin Bergman collection at the Art Institute of Chicago by Dawn Ades( Book )

15 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 697 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"One of the finest and most famous collections of Surrealist art ever assembled is that of Chicago philanthropists Lindy and Edwin Bergman. The core of this collection, now housed at The Art Institute of Chicago, comprises 116 works in a wide range of media, from drawings and collages to paintings and sculptures."--BOOK JACKET. "The thirty-three artists represented in the Bergman Collection and featured in this book constitute a veritable who's who of the Surrealist movement. These include Jean Arp, Andre Breton, Leonora Carrington, Joseph Cornell, Salvador Dali, Jean Dubuffet, Max Ernst, Wilfredo Lam, Rene Magritte, Joan Miro, Francis Picabia, Pablo Picasso, and Yves Tanguy. One of the collection's highlights is a group of thirty-eight boxes and collages by Cornell, the largest and most representative public holding of his art in the world."--BOOK JACKET. "Dawn Ades, a noted critic and historian of the Surrealist movement, has written an absorbing account of the works in the Bergman Collection and has contributed as well an introductory essay on the history of the collection. All of the objects are reproduced in full color; each entry is accompanied by information on provenance, literature, and exhibition history, as well as by Ms. Ade's knowledgeable commentary. The resulting book provides both a comprehensive view of a distinguished Surrealist art collection and an interpretive history of this intriguing, popular, and influential art movement."--Jacket

The Dada reader : a critical anthology( Book )

14 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 579 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The revolutionary Dada movement, though short-lived, produced a vast amount of creative work in both art and literature during the years that followed World War I. Rejecting all social and artistic conventions, Dadaists went to the extremes of provocative behavior, creating "anti-art" pieces that ridiculed and questioned the very nature of creative endeavor. To understand their movement's heady mix of anarchy and nihilism - combined with a lethal dash of humor - it's essential to engage with the artists' most important writings and manifestos. And that is is precisely where this reader comes in." "Bringing together key Dada texts, many of them translated into English for the first time, this volume immerses readers in some of the most famous (and infamous) periodicals of the time, from Hugo Ball's Cabaret Voltaire and Francis Picabia's 391 to Marcel Duchamp's The Blind Man and Kurt Schwitters's Merz. Published in Europe and the United States between 1916 and 1932, these journals constituted the movement's lifeblood, communicating the desires and aspirations of the artists involved. In addition to providing the first representative selection of these texts, The Dada Reader also includes excerpts from many lesser-known American and Eastern European journals."--Jacket
In wonderland : the surrealist adventures of women artists in Mexico and the United States by Ilene Susan Fort( Book )

13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Filled with a wide array of illustrations, this book offers a fresh perspective on surrealism as it spotlights the important role that North American women artists played in the movement. The surrealist movement in art is most often identified with male artists, many of whom objectified women in their paintings, casting them as sexual or symbolic ideals. Conversely, the female artists of the movement delved primarily into their own subconscious and dreams. This volume features the work of 48 Mexican and U.S.-based women artists whose contributions to the surrealist movement span more than four decades and whose work was both influential and radical in its own right. Thematically arranged, it includes more than 250 full-color images along with several essays exploring the effects of geography and gender on the movement. This unique book illustrates surrealism as a gateway to self-discovery, especially in North America, where women artists were freed from oppressive European traditions and the vagaries of war. From 1931, the year of Lee Miller's first surreal photograph, to 1968, when Yayoi Kusama presented her landmark happening "Alice in Wonderland" in New York's Central Park, the artists and works depicted here are both significant and extraordinary in their explorations of personal and universal truths"--
