In the popular imagination, no other artist's work is as recognizable as that of Salvador Dalí. Indeed, for many he is the ultimate mad artist, whose idiosyncratic vision relentlessly explored his own psychological depths. His nightmarish visions and bizarre landscapes express the anxiety and turbulence of the 20th century. Dalí's creativity encompassed many different modes of expression and was never limited by one style.
For eight decades, Dalí's activities spanned every conceivable medium, from painting and drawing to sculpture, film, furniture, books, set design and jewelry, not to mention his highly eccentric public persona, which could be considered an art form in itself.
Selected by curator and art historian Paul Moorhouse, Assouline presents Salvador Dalí: The Impossible Collection, which highlights 100 works by this extraordinary creative mind and explores Dalí's sources of inspiration and range of influences, from old masters to realism, impressionism, fauvism and cubism, as well as experimental approaches that deepen his obsessions with religion, science and stereoscopy.
