Dali

Dali

Ades, Dawn
$21.95

In this revised and updated edition of art historian Dawn Ades's seminal study of Salvador Dalí, based on interviews with the artist, Ades examines what accounts for Dalí's popularity, exploring such issues as the accessibility of his imagery and his talent as a self-publicist. This book reconsiders the Dali´ phenomenon, from his early years and the development of his technique and style to his relationship with the Surrealists, his exploitation of Freudian ideas, and the image that he created of himself as the mad genius artist.

This new edition of Dalí is an accessible and vibrantly illustrated introduction to one of the most significant artists of the twentieth century.

Black Ballerinas

Black Ballerinas

Copeland, Misty
$19.99
From New York Times bestselling and award-winning author and American Ballet Theatre principal dancer Misty Copeland comes an illustrated nonfiction collection celebrating dancers of color who have influenced her on and off the stage.

As a young girl living in a motel with her mother and her five siblings, Misty Copeland didn't have a lot of exposure to ballet or prominent dancers. She was sixteen when she saw a black ballerina on a magazine cover for the first time. The experience emboldened Misty and told her that she wasn't alone--and her dream wasn't impossible.

In the years since, Misty has only learned more about the trailblazing women who made her own success possible by pushing back against repression and racism with their talent and tenacity. Misty brings these women's stories to a new generation of readers and gives them the recognition they deserve.

With an introduction from Misty about the legacy these women have had on dance and on her career itself, this book delves into the lives and careers of women of color who fundamentally changed the landscape of American ballet from the early 20th century to today.
