Description

The remarkable life of Salvador Dalí – in graphic novel form

Was he a madman, a genius or an exhibitionist? There is no shortage of labels for the Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, as well known for his acts of public bravado as for his extraordinary work. Edmond Baudoin, one of the most original talents in contemporary French comics, sets out to discover the man behind the myth. What emerges is a heartfelt and inimitable account of two artistic worlds, each possessed of its own rare intensity, meeting for the first time.

Commissioned by the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Dalí is a rigorously researched and absorbing portrait of a singular artist and an enigmatic man.

Review:

“The magic of the surrealist artist is lovingly captured by award-winning French artist and writer Edmond Baudoin” –Starburst

From Publishers Weekly

Nov 14, 2016 – Too out-there for Van Gogh-adoring mainstream art fans and often too pop for the avant-garde, Dali occupies a curious place in the art firmament. Baudoin's tangled and discursive but perceptive graphic biography gives him some much-needed context. The narrative follows a troubled narcissist and exhibitionist who might well have gone mad were it not for art. Dali was a violent child raised in the shadow of a brother (also named Salvador) who died just months before his birth in 1904 who never quite escaped his youthful terrors. Still just a teenager when he fell in with Federico Garcia Lorca and Andre Breton, Dali's embrace of Surrealism and Freudian theories of the subconscious made him a darling of the prewar artistic set. But his Picasso-like ambition and embrace of fame led him to shrug off old relationships and embrace everything from Hollywood to Andy Warhol. Baudoin is a revered comics master in his native France, and his mercifully clear-eyed vision of Dali's imperfections is welcome, though the rushed treatment of the artist's postwar work leaves this otherwise smart and edgy biography feeling somewhat unfinished.
