Outrageous and enigmatic, Dal remains one of the twentieth centurys most popular artists. This book presents the complete paintings of the Salvador Dal Museum in St. Petersburg, Florida, which houses the most comprehensive collection of Dals art in the world. It provides a unique overview of Dals career from his student days to his postwar fascination with history, science, and mysticism, and finally, his later, more cryptic works.

A leading Dali scholar, Robert S. Lubar is Associate Professor of Fine Arts, New York University, Institute of Fine Arts, where he received his PhD.

His essays have appeared in many publications including Picasso and The Spanish Tradition (Yale 1996) and the exhibition catalog for Early Picasso at the National Gallery of Art, Washington, 1997.From Publishers Weekly:
This compact yet dazzling album, based on the collection of the Salvador Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, Fla., serves as an idea point of entry into the Dalian universe. Even in the early, representational, color-drenched paintings (1917-1927), one senses Dali's "violent passion for the exterior world." Then comes the sudden plunge into the irrational (1927-1928), followed by a succession of surrealist canvases in which the Catalan prestidigitator purges his fantasies, fears and obsessions. Lubar, an art professor at New York University, argues that Dali (1904-1989), too often dismissed as a reactionary, "sought nothing less than the liberation of desire through a critique of language and visuality." Judging by the evidence here, Dali's watercolors deserve to be as well known as his oils, and his sensitive, poised drawings give his febrile imagination free rein without the grandiloquence that mars some of the paintings.
