Dali  free pdf An extraordinary memoir of fortune, fraud, and the master of modern artArt dealer Stan Lauryssens made millions in modern art, but he sold only one name: Salvador Dali. The surrealist painter's work was a hot commodity for the newly rich, investors, and shady businessmen looking to launder their black-market cash. Stan didn't mind looking the other way- he just hoped the buyers would look the other way as well. The artworks he sold came from some very questionable sources, but he soon discovered that the shadiest source of all was Dali himself. The more successful Stan became, the closer he came to Dali, until he found himself living next door to the aging artist, in the Catalonian hills. While hiding from Interpol's detectives, Stan spent his time with the artists, musicians, business associates, and eccentrics who surrounded Dali. He learned about Dali's secret history, the studio of artists who produced his work, and the moneymaking machine that kept Dali's extravagant lifestyle afloat long after his creativity began to flounder.
