Publisher: Chicago Review Press | ISBN: 155652479X | edition 2003 | PDF | 145 pages | 5,76 mb
For ages 10+. The bizarre and often humourous creations of Magritte, Miro, Salvador Dali, and other surrealists are showcased in this activity guide for young artists. Foremost among the surrealists, Salvador Dali was a painter, filmmaker, designer, performance artist, and eccentric self-promoter. His famous icons, including the melting watches, double images, and everyday objects set in odd contexts, helped to define the way people view reality and encourage children to view the world in new ways. Dali's controversial life is explored while children trace the roots of some familiar modern images.
