"The world will admire me. Perhaps I'll be despised and misunderstood, but I'll be a great genius, I'm certain of it."

At 16, Salvador Dali had already developed the remarkable ego and uncanny perception that would distinguish him as one of the most notorious artists of the 20th century. A self-proclaimed surrealist, an avant-garde exhibitionist, and a criticized commercialist with questionable political affiliations, Dali was anything but benign. Biographer Ian Gibson (Federico Garcia Lorca) argues that the modern master was motivated primarily by the very last thing anyone would suspect him of: a very deep sense of shame. Via the artist's correspondence, diary, and autobiography (The Secret Life of Salvador Dali), Gibson meticulously stitches together the wild characters and deep-dish details of Dali's life: a guilt-ridden childhood, feelings of sexual inadequacy ("...I discovered that my penis was small, pitiful and soft"), his love affairs with Lorca and sex-pot Gala and the real passion of his life, surrealism. Critical, fair, and lively, The Shameful Life of Salvador Dali digs beyond the escapades and outlandish façade to expose the very personal and vulnerable side of one of the world's most eccentric performers.

Synopsis

This biography argues that Salvador Dali lived a "shameful" life in every way: that underlying his exhibitionism was an intense feeling of shame, the individual hanging his head being one of the recurrent themes of his painting. The book presents a portrait of a disjointed character. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

reprint from Isthmus (Madison, WI) Vol. 23, No. 31, July 31-August 6, 1998, p. 19.
Dead almost ten years now, Salvador Dali (1904-89) remains one of the most talked about artists of the 20th century; pause quietly and you may hear the cascade of all that talk still drift softly upon his coffin. Dali was and still is, a household name - a rare thing for artists in their own lifetime, let alone immediately after their death. But despite name recognition, only Dali seemed aware of Dali's genius. A literal outcast among the avant garde's own putrid outcasts, Dali seemed not prepared or capable of fitting anywhere, whether within the faux freedom of Andre Breton's Surrealism or in the realm of post-war America's not-joking-around art world.
Despite a career that lasted until 1983, Dali only produced good work between 1929 and 1933. At least, that's what most art historians, curators and critics would have you believe. Dali's autobiographical fiction, public antics and impeccable talent for self generating PR has tended to color the way many artwriters have looked at his art: commercial kitsch painted by a hack fraud. Dali is possibly the only major artist of the modern period who hasn't been thoroughly reassessed. Thanks to several recent contributions like Ian Gibson's essential new biography, it seems Mr. Dali's cultural contributions, rather than public charades and smoke screens, are at last being assessed.
Gibson's Dali is better understood than ever. Dali's formative years are conjured in a dreamlike, magic realist narrative contextualizing the artist's Catalan background.

Most biographies I've read, the opening chapters are a bore of mundane details of the person's childhood that are uninterestnig and nearly always read the same. In contrast, Ian Gibson's writing style is so lush, that even the detailed history of the Dali family before Salvador was born are compelling. Gibson gives you the feel of the Spanish countryside and the era in which Dali and his forefathers lived. Gibson is a careful biographer as well. Instead of taking Dali's own autobiography, "The Secret Life Of Salvador Dali," at face value, Gibson researches Dali's life and points out discrepencies and exaggerations of Dali writings. It led me to reread Dali's own writings and gave me further insight into the mind of the artist. I enjoyed reading about Dali's relationships with other painters (Surreal and otherwise), writers and poets such as Lorca, and his love of jazz. Far from a dry outline of a famous person's life, this book makes Dali come alive.

Well researched revisionist biography of one of the century's great artists. As the title implies, the author suggests that a key to understanding Dali is his feelings of shame. Dali suffered from almost paralizing bouts of shame as a child, and struggled (not always successfully) to work around or overcompensate for them. Those with a casual interest in Dali should start off with the artist's own "The Secret Life of Salvador Dali" for many insights and a more entertaining read. The "Shamefull Life" tries to find the story behind the story. My biggest objection to this book is Gibson's almost total dismissal of Dali's art after 1940, which I fear is a prejudice based more on politics than the Dali's art itself.

If you are looking for a complete documentary of Dali, here it is. Use it for school papers. But if you are looking for an enjoyable read of the life and times of Salvador Dali, that has yet to be written.
Gibson methodically lists each period of Dali's life in as much detail as is probably possible in anything shorter than an archive. Although the author's thorough research is commendable-- certainly he has done a service to art history-- this dedication often drowns the reader without revealing much passion. And if you didn't comprehend Dali's perversions and the psychoanalytical content of his works before reading this tome, you won't after, either.
