Overview

Now available again, this fascinating look at Dal' explores the forces that shaped the life and works of one of the modern art world's most inscrutable and misunderstood figures. Concise yet comprehensive, this elegant volume follows Dal''s artistic development from the 1920s to his death in 1989. Accompanied by brilliant reproductions and the artist's own words, it offers detailed analyses of his most important paintings based on the theories of two men who deeply influenced his thinking: Sigmund Freud and his protégé, Otto Rank. What emerges is a picture of an artist whose pursuit of self-knowledge provides fascinating and important insights into the inner workings of the creative imagination.
