We also learn how Dalí draws inspiration from excrement, rotten fish and Vermeers Lacemaker to enter his rhinocerontic period, preaching his post-holocaustal gospels of nuclear mysticism and cosmogenic atavism- and we follow the labyrinthine mental journeys that lead to the creation of such paintings as the Assumption, and his film script The Flesh Wheelbarrow.This new expanded edition includes a brilliant and revelatory essay on Salvador Dalí, and the importance of his art to the 20th century, by the author J. G. Ballard.
