In the company of Dalí - Robert Whitaker
In 1967, Robert Whitaker, photographic chronicler of the underground scene in Swinging London, met Salvador Dalí, surrealist and enfant terrible of the art world.
The chemistry worked and Bob told Dalí that he wanted to use his camera "to get inside his head." Dalí was flattered and happy to collaborate and the result was a unique portfolio of candid and intimate photographs of the artist at work and play: relaxing in his home environment, sailing his boat, swimming in his pool, trying out the company of friends and working on his paintings.
For the first time, this subtle, humorous and venerable portrait of one of the most iconic artists of the 20th century is made available to the public. In The Company of Dalí offers a fascinating and horrifying insight into the man behind the myth.
