Baudoin is a revered comics master in his native France, and his mercifully clear-eyed vision of Dali’s imperfections is welcome, though the rushed treatment of the artist’s postwar work leaves this otherwise smart and edgy biography feeling somewhat unfinished.

Synopsis

The remarkable life of Salvador Dalí - in graphic novel form

Was he a madman, a genius or an exhibitionist? There is no shortage of labels for the Surrealist painter Salvador Dalí, as well known for his acts of public bravado as for his extraordinary work. Edmond Baudoin, one of the most original talents in contemporary French comics, sets out to discover the man behind the myth. What emerges is a heartfelt and inimitable account of two artistic worlds, each possessed of its own rare intensity, meeting for the first time.
Commissioned by the Pompidou Centre in Paris, Dalí is a rigorously researched and absorbing portrait of a singular artist and an enigmatic man.

“The magic of the surrealist artist is lovingly captured by award-winning French artist and writer Edmond Baudoin” –Starburst
