Summary, etc. note: The Pompidou Center invites Edmond Baudoin, one of the most prestigious European comic authors, to reflect on Dalí. Baudoin delves into the life and work of the legendary and enigmatic artist, friend of Buñuel and Lorca, icon of surrealism; he immersed himself with his virtuous stroke in the bold and unbridled universe of Dalí, to initiate with him an intimate dialogue, offering us his personal vision of one of the great creators of the 20th century. The album follows the life of Dalí in a chronological way, but alternate key facts of his life's journey with Baudoin's personal reflections on the painter and anecdotes of his childhood that the author decides to highlight by its special meaning. The comic author walks through the existence of the extravagant painter, trying to decipher his desires, his fears, the intricacies of his paintings and his personality, relying on the strength of his own drawing. Baudoin comments: "I did not especially like his painting, nor the a priori man, but when studying about him, I began to love him. I read a lot about him, I saw movies, I saw images, I entered his world, and I saw a human being. And a human being is always moving, even the worst of criminals. Dalí is first and foremost a human being. He was someone who wanted to live above all else, and that trait is something extraordinary. " "Personal and audacious as the painting of the surrealist genius". Tereixa Constenla. The country
