Salvador Dali at Home

I received a copy of Salvador Dali at Home through NetGalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.

If you’ve ever wanted to learn more about Salvador Dali, then I strongly suggest you check out Salvador Dali at Home. Not only is it a great starting resource, but it’s incredibly in depth. Most of all it did a wonderful job applying context; connecting information about the artist to the paintings. That’s the sort of thing I really love in an art history book.

What I loved the most about this book is that you can tell how much research went into writing it – yet the information itself was presented neatly and cleanly. There’s nothing more frustrating that reading a biography where it feels like the author is spewing facts in your face. Here the details discovered all flow, and accompanying all of it are photos of Salvador Dali and his works. It’s all perfectly balanced and wonderfully done.

I wish I had been able to preview this in hardback format – I can only imagine how impressive it must look then. I’m going to have to check it out in store (and knowing me, pick up a copy for myself). Though I have little doubt that it’ll hold up to my expectations.

About Liz (AKA Cat)

I am an avid animal lover, photographer, graphic designer, and much more. I love to create art, and am willing to try any artistic technique at least once. I am particularly fond of artworks involving a lot of emotion and color. The purpose of my blog is for me to be open and honest with myself and the world about my attempts to grow as an artist. My other major passion is reading. My TBR pile is larger than I'll ever be able to read, and yet I can't resist adding to it on a nearly daily basis. I love to read science fiction & fantasy, graphic novels, and pretty much anything I can get my hands on. I have a couple of blogs, as you can see. One is primarily my photography, while the other are my book reviews. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!
