Salvador Dali: The Late Work.


Quarto, paperbound (full-color illus. thick, doubled cardstock covers), 176 pp. Illustrated in full color. Near-Fine. From inner cover: 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.
