Dali's fully illustrated treatise on the skills and techniques, ideas and aims, history, colours, personalities and mysteries of painting and being an artist. Filled with both brilliant and comic illustrations and subjective advice and commentary, as well as being marvellously biased, this volume gives a unique insight into the mind and artistic outlook of the great surrealist painter, illustrator and image maker.  Filled with odd observations, lists, egotistical self regard and humour, this is essential to any lover or student of his work. Includes gems such as ..."As your studio must be situated close to the spot where you were born, and as, if you are to be a good painter, this spot must have an admirable natural setting, the choice of landscape with which you decide to fall in love will be relatively easy for you", list of unsuitable colours including "English sky blue", list of painters defined by skill, genius and mystery including Dali himself (of course scoring well), this is an endlessly entertaining volume as well as an important addition to his well known book illustrations - most pages have accompanying sketches and designs and there are full and double page drawings.
