Antoni Gaudi, Salvador DaliUnknown - 2003
Antoni Gaud#65533;/Salvador Dal#65533;, the premiere book in the Duets series, brings together the work of these two artistic geniuses in order to present a rich comparative study. Essentially three volumes in one, a section on each artist presents a brief biography and an examination of some major works, with a third section that compares the images and ideas of the two artists. Although upon first glance one wouldn't think to compare the architectural whimsy of Gaud#65533; with Dal#65533;'s dark visions, this book illuminates the similarities between them. Both men were great observers of nature, gifted with an uncommon sensitivity, and able to transcend the techniques of their respective disciplines to create unique designs that influenced and changed their fields forever. Antoni Gaud#65533;/Salvador Dal#65533; is a book that art and architecture lovers will treasure for years to come.
