Sinopsis

Salvador Dalí’s epicurean guidebook

Hot on the heels (or lobster claws) of the best-selling Salvador Dalí phenomenon, Les dîners de Gala, TASCHEN presents the artist’s equally surreal and sensual viticulture follow-up: The Wines of Gala. A Dalínian take on pleasures of the grape and a coveted collectible, the book sets out to organize wines “according to the sensations they create in our very depths.” Through eclectic metrics like production method, weight, and color, the book presents wines of the world in such innovative, Dalíesque groupings as “Wines of Frivolity,” “Wines of the Impossible,” and “Wines of Light.”

Bursting with imagery, the book features more than 140 illustrations by Dalí. Many of these are appropriated artworks, including various classical nudes, all of them reconstructed with suitably Surrealist, provocative touches, like Jean-François Millet’s The Angelus, one of Dalí’s favorite points of reference over the decades. Dalí also included what is now considered one of the greatest works from his late “Nuclear Mystic” phase, The Sacrament of the Last Supper (1955), which sets the iconic biblical scene in a translucent dodecahedron-shaped space before a Catalonian coastal landscape. Dalí was by this stage a devout Catholic, simultaneously captivated by science, optical illusion, and the atomic age.

The first section is dedicated to “Ten Divine Dalí Wines,” an overview of 10 important wine-growing regions, while the second develops Dalí’s revolutionary ordering of wine by emotional experience, instead of by geography or variety. Rather than any prescriptive classification, it’s a flamboyant, free-flowing manifesto in favor of taste and feeling, as much a multisensory treat as a full-bodied document of Dalí’s late-stage oeuvre, in which the artist both reflected on formative influences and refined his own cultural legacy.

    Dalí, Salvador
    Food and surrealism make perfect bedfellows: Sex and lobsters, collage and cannibalism, the meeting of a swan and a toothbrush on a pastry case. The opulent dinner parties thrown by Salvador Dalí (1904–1989) and his wife and muse, Gala (1894–1982) were the stuff of legend. Luckily for us, Dalí published a cookbook in 1973, Les diners de Gala, which reveals some of the sensual, ...

    En abril de 1926, Salvador Dalí conoció a Pablo Picasso en París. Ese encuentro fue el inicio de una de las relaciones más complejas de la historia del arte del siglo xx.

Con el tiempo, la fascinación del joven Dalí por el arte del «maestro» se fue transformando casi en una...

  • Cornudos del viejo arte moderno, Los
    Dalí, Salvador
    Durante toda la década de los cincuenta Dalí anduvo preocupado por el modo, para él servil, en que los críticos se sometían ciegamente a la dictadura de las vanguardias artísticas y, en particular, a la más «moderna» corriente abstracta en la pintura. Su opinión sobre la crítica y los críticos de la época la dio a conocer en panfletos, artículos, en su diario (Diario de un geni...

    Dalí, Salvador
    Diario de un genio (1952-1964), que sigue a Mi vida secreta, revela a un Dalí cotidiano, de una extraordinaria autenticidad, una especie de retrato de Dalí desnudo, contemplándose con sumo deleite en el espejo ante el cual él mismo se sitúa. Pero lo que salta a la vista es que Dalí no sólo ama su reflejo: presentes en él, y mucho más allá de su propia imagen, están las grandes ...

    La comida y el surrealismo son amantes perfectos: sexo y langostas, collage y canibalismo, el encuentro de un cisne y un cepillo de dientes en una pastelería. Las cenas opulentas que organizaban Salvador Dalí (1904-1989) y Gala (1894-1982), su mujer y musa, fueron legendarias. Afortunadamente para nosotros, Dalí publicó un libro de cocina en 1973, Les dîners de Gala, que desvel...
