Summary
"This book focuses on a central but relatively unexamined aspect of the work of Salvador Dali: his fascination with optical effects and visual perception. The book examines Dali's use of various pictorial techniques, photography, and holograms to further his exploration of visual perception and the ways that optical illusion affects our sense of reality." "This book is the catalogue for an exhibition at the Wardsworth Atheneum Museum of Art, Hartford, Connecticut; the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington, D.C.; and at the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art, Edinburgh."--Jacket
