About the Art
This is an original lithograph from Salvador Dali’s Biblia Sacra series. Dali was commissioned to create a series of images based on passages from the Bible. He created a total of 105 works making it the largest suite of prints by the artist. 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 simple, yet poignant work represents Jesus uttering his last breath. Jesus’s presence is shown as a bright red smudge, alluding to his pain and suffering on the cross.
