Pressestimmen'... certainly one of the better books on Dali I have encountered ... the text is an excellent exposition of what was within Dali's horizon of expectations almost moment by moment. In this respect, the book is exemplary, going well beyond the tendency towards generalisation apparent in almost every other book-length work on the artist.' British Journal of Aesthetics ' ... this exuberant, well-focused study charts the metamorphosis of an unsure, neurotic Catalan painter into a dynamic, neurotic internationally famous (ex)-Surrealist.'
