The shameful life of Salvador Dalí by Ian Gibson( Book )

32 editions published between 1997 and 2011 in 5 languages and held by 1,367 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on extensive original research and recently discovered sources, Ian Gibson presents a daringly original portrait of one of this century's most celebrated--and infamous--artists. He provides a full narrative of Dali's life as artist and as uninhibited exhibitionist, from his wild and troubled youth through his often rollickingly funny adventures in Paris, New York, and Hollywood to his poignant last years. Here is Dali fully revealed through his voluminous correspondence; his novel, poems, and essays; and interviews with some of those closest to him. The Shameful Life of Salvador Dali reexamines the roles of the two most important individuals in the artist's life: the Spanish playwright and author Federico Garcia Lorca and the enigmatic, libidinous Gala, the Russian emigre whose marriage Dali broke up and with whom he subsequently lived in unconsummated bliss and terror. This is a truly incandescent life of the surrealist artist who caught the imagination of the twentieth century

Salvador Dalí : the early years by Salvador Dalí( Book )

23 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 636 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first book to explore in depth the development of Dali's early work up to about 1930 - work that led to his emergence as one of the greatest and most popular Surrealist painters. It shows how deeply his later images, obsessions, and attitudes were rooted in his youthful experiences in Catalonia and Spain, and makes a major contribution to the study of this period of Spanish art. Published to accompany an international exhibition of Dali's work to be seen at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, London's Hayward Gallery and the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, the book contains innovative essays by some of the best-known writers on Dali, Surrealism and contemporary cultural life in Spain, including Dawn Ades, Ian Gibson and Rafael Santos Torroella. Dali's upbringing in Figueres and Cadaques, his student years in Madrid, his relationship with the poet Federico Garcia Lorca, his collaboration with the filmmaker Bunuel, the critical reception of his work, and his ambivalent connection to the French Surrealists before 1930 are all discussed, illuminating in an unprecedented way the imagery of his paintings. This highly original reassessment of Dali's artistic complexity and importance as an innovator contains extensive, previously unpublished documentary material and has been designed to recreate the distinctive look of publications of the period. It includes an extended selection of his texts in translation, an illustrated chronology, many drawings and color plates of the most significant paintings of the period

The spirit of Lorca by Ian Gibson( Visual )

2 editions published between 1986 and 2016 in English and held by 273 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In a brief life filled with prodigious artistic achievements, Federico Garcia Lorca's greatest legacy may well be his complex and compelling personality. Filmed on location in Spain, this program profiles the immortalized poet/dramatist, capturing the potent essence of Spanish culture in the process. Extracts from his poems, plays, and letters demonstrate his duende-burning passion-for the arts, while the details of his life and violent death, as told by his biographer Ian Gibson, contemporaries Rafael Alberti and Luis Rosales, and others, present a thoughtful perspective on Spain's revered literary icon

The erotomaniac : the secret life of Henry Spencer Ashbee by Ian Gibson( Book )

8 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"To all intents and purposes, Henry Spencer Ashbee was a prosperous and respectable Victorian gentleman. But his well-upholstered chambers in Gray's Inn concealed a shocking secret: Ashbee's vast collection of erotica and pornography, thousands of volumes strong." "Acclaimed biographer Ian Gibson has created an engrossing portrait of Ashbee, a man who happily supported his unsuspecting wife and four children, but spent his spare time methodically cataloguing such risque titles as The Story of a Dildoe and The Marchioness's Amorous Pastimes." "With exclusive access to Ashbee's diaries and to his family's archives, Gibson has uncovered evidence that Ashbee may have been the author of the notorious My Secret Life - the 'true' autobiography of an unnamed Victorian gentleman who 'enjoys many females, and narrates in the most painstaking manner their habits, customs and modes of sexual pleasure'. In The Erotomaniac Ian Gibson explores Ashbee's own secret life. The result is a fascinating portrait of a Victorian who seems to typify his age in all its curiousity, repression and subverted desire."--BOOK JACKET
