Died: 1989 - Figueras, Spain. Known for: Surrealist painting, drawing, photography, sculpture. Name variants: Salvador Felipe Jacinto Dalí Y Domenech, Salvador Dali Domenech. By far the most popular of all Dali's religious works is without a doubt his'Christ of Saint John of the Cross', whose figure dominates the Bay of Port Lligat.The painting was inspired by a drawing, preserved in the Convent of the Incarnation in Avila, Spain, and done by Saint John of the Cross himself after he had seen this vision of Christ during an ecstasy. The people beside the boat are derived from a picture by Le Nain and from a drawing by Diego Velazquez for The Surrender of Breda. Christ of Saint John of the Cross is a painting by Salvador Dalí made in 1951 which is in the collection of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow. It depicts Jesus Christ on the cross in a darkened sky floating over a body of water complete with a boat and fishermen.
At the bottom of his studies for the Christ, Dali wrote: In the first place, in 1950, I had a'cosmic dream' in which I saw this image in color and which in my dream represented the'nucleus of the atom'. This nucleus later took on a metaphysical sense; I considered in'the very unity of the universe', the Christ!In the second place, when, thanks to the instructions of Father Bruno, a Carmelite, I saw the Christ drawn by Saint John of the Cross, I worked out geometrically a triangle and a circle, which aesthetically summarized all my previous experiments, and I inscribed my Christ in this triangle.
