dali.ppt provides a slideshow presentation, reassessing the life and works of Salvador Dali. Entitled Artist or kitsch-meister?, Slate's art critic Lee Siegel, definitely comes down on the side of artist. While Dali's later life as self promoter and caricature, often overshadow the importance of his earlier work, he remains an important figure in 20th century visual arts. The presentation glosses over his collaboration with Buñuel, but alas, not everyone is as obsessed with the work of Don Luis as myself.
