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. This work shows God creating and blessing the creatures of the earth. The rich dripping blue paint surrounding God contrasts with the more arid depiction of the landscape below. Dali clearly conveys the power and dominion of God.

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.
