Salvador Dalí : the late work by Salvador Dalí( Book )

12 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 520 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handsomely illustrated volume focuses on Dali's output after 1940, which drew inspiration from both the Old Masters and the contemporary world. Beginning in the late 1930s with the transition from Dali's well-known Surrealist canvases to the classicism he announced in 1941, the volume traces the artist's development of "nuclear mysticism" in the 1950s, his enduring interest in science, optical effects, and illusionism, his commercial ventures (which predate and inspired such efforts by Andy Warhol), his collaborations with photographer Philippe Halsman (and his brief forays into Hollywood), and visits the two major repositories of his work--the Dali Theatre-Museum in Figueres, Spain, and the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida. --Book Jacket
The shape of color : Joan Miró's painted sculpture by Laura Coyle( Book )

11 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 285 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Colorful, provocative, and full of humor, the late painted sculptures by Joan Miro from a little-known group of medium- and large-scale works. Published to coincide with the opening of a major exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art, Washington D.C., this is the first ever in-depth study of his exuberant, brilliantly painted sculpture." "Widely recognized for his major contribution to Modern and Surrealist art, Miro is best known for his painting. Exploring new ground, The Shape of Color features Miro's painted sculpture alongside rarely exhibited or published studies and sketchbook pages, maquettes, and documentary photographs. Leading scholars offer fresh interpretations of Miro's sculpture, its historical and cultural context, and its critical reception."--Jacket
Dalí Duchamp by Dawn Ades( Book )

6 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 236 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dali/Duchamp examines in detail the often-overlooked relationship between two of the twentieth century's most famous artists. Though polar opposites at first glance, Duchamp, the father of conceptual art who rejected painting in 1918, and the more showman-like Dali, the exceptional painter of fantastical landscapes, were united by a combination of humour and scepticism that led both to challenge conventional views of art and life. After meeting in the 1930s through mutual contacts within the Surrealist group, they maintained a firm friendship over the following decades, spending time together in Paris, New York and Catalonia, where Duchamp purchased a summer house in Cadaques, close to Dali's home in Port Lligat. Throughout the book, expert contributors explore themes common to both artists, chief among them eroticism and identity, and both men's surprising engagement with science, optics, religion and myth. Each section is sumptuously illustrated with key pieces from both artists' bodies of work, and features previously unpublished photographs, letters and ephemera that demonstrate the enduring warmth of their friendship

Dalí & Magritte by Salvador Dalí( Book )

8 editions published in 2019 in English and French and held by 30 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dit najaar wijden de Koninklijke Musea voor Schone Kunsten van België een uitzonderlijke tentoonstelling aan Salvador Dalí en René Magritte. De expo belicht de verhoudingen tussen beide surrealisten en toont hun onmiskenbare wederzijdse beïnvloeding. Dalí en Magritte ontmoeten elkaar in het voorjaar van 1929 in Parijs. In augustus van datzelfde jaar reist Magritte op uitnodiging van Dalí naar Cadaqués, de thuishaven van de Spaanse schilder. Die zogenaamde surrealistische zomer van 1929 - ook Éluard, Miró en Buñuel maken deel uit van het gezelschap - zal van groot belang blijken te zijn voor beide kunstenaars.0Zowel Dalí als Magritte tasten de grenzen van de werkelijkheid af: ze betwisten onze blik en gooien onze zekerheden om. Hun stijl en persoonlijkheden waren erg verschillend en hun wegen zouden uiteindelijk scheiden. Nochtans bestaat er een fascinerend verwantschap tussen de Catalaan en de Belg.0De tentoonstelling werpt licht op de persoonlijke, filosofische en esthetische relatie van deze iconen van het surrealisme aan de hand van meer dan 100 schilderijen, sculpturen, foto's, tekeningen, films en archiefstukken.00Exhibition: K.M.S.K.B / M.R.B.A., Brussels, Belgium (11.10.2019-09.02.2020)
