In 1938, Salvador Dalí travelled to the London home of Sigmund Freud, who had just arrived in the UK after escaping Nazi-occupied Vienna. Dalí brought with him a painting and a magazine article he had written on paranoia. This famous encounter of two legends is the basis of this beautiful volume, bound in imitation red leather and featuring foldout plates of Dalí’s work. The title explores how the Surrealist was inspired by and used Freud’s theories to generate his compositions.
This emissary of Surrealism had long hoped to meet Freud; he had read translations of Freud’s writings since the early 1920s and had studied them extensively. He asked their mutual friend, the Austrian author Stefan Zweig, to arrange the meeting.
A great variety of Dalí’s oeuvre is surveyed in this book, including his paintings, sculptures, photographs, films, books, magazines, letters and other documents. In addition, this volume explores his encounters with other artists, such as Federico García Lorca, Luis Buñuel and Santiago Ramón y Cajal.
"Dalí - Freud: An Obsession" also crucially examines how psychoanalysis helped Dalí process his complex childhood and use it in his paintings.
