Salvador Dali

I've been a fan of Dali's work for the last 15 years or so after going to see an exhibit of his at a local museum, so this will definitely be making it's way into my book collection.

Rizzoli's Flammarion imprint is set to release a new book on the works of Salvador Dali: The Making of an Artist which is an extensive volume that looks into the artist's development and influence.  The new book goes beyond Dali's work with painting to include other media including literature, photography, film and sculpture.

From Dali's Mae West Lips Sofa and the Lobster Telephone, Salvador Dali: The Making of an Artist takes you through his multi-disciplinary work.  Modern day artists influence by Dali are also featured including Warhol, Koons and Murakami.

Available March 5th.
