Drawing on extensive original research and recently discovered sources, Ian Gibson presents a daringly original portrait of one of this century's most celebrated--and infamous--artists. He provides a full narrative of Dal#65533;'s life as artist and as uninhibited exhibitionist, from his wild and troubled youth through his often rollickingly funny adventures in Paris, New York, and Hollywood to his poignant last years. Here is Dal#65533; fully revealed through his voluminous correspondence; his novel, poems, and essays; and interviews with some of those closest to him. The Shameful Life of Salvador Dal#65533; reexamines the roles of the two most important individuals in the artist's life: the Spanish playwright and author Federico Garc#65533;a Lorca and the enigmatic, libidinous Gala, the Russian #65533;migr#65533; whose marriage Dal#65533; broke up and with whom he subsequently lived in unconsummated bliss and terror. This is a truly incandescent life of the surrealist artist who caught the imagination of the twentieth century.
