About the Art
This is an original color lithograph from Dali’s Biblia Sacra suite, a collection of 105 images illustrating biblical passages. Each work represents Dali’s unique interpretation of the Bible. In these works he uses a unique artistic process called “bulletism” where ink is shot onto the canvas creating an ink blot effect. The lithographs were commissioned by Guiseppe Albaretto, a good friend of Dali who was also a leading patron of his work. Albaretto wanted to lead the artist to God and back to the Catholic Church. The spontaneous bulletism process and the rich colors in the image truly highlight Dali’s range of creativity and use of space.
This piece comes from the book Jeremiah. It depicts the prophet explaining the reasoning behind the destruction of Judah. In this piece you see a dark silhouette of a figure, this is perhaps Jeremiah. With the black circle surrounding him, it reveals his vision of the army destroying Judah. Silhouettes are big for Dali, we can see them throughout his works. They represent several things such as the supernatural, evil conflicts, dreams and fantasies.
This piece comes in another beautiful gold ornate frame, with white matting surrounding it.
