Christ of St John of the Cross-Dali

By PaulLiley  
Salvador Dali's oil on canvas at the Kelvingrove Gallery-Glasgow. An unusual perspective of Christ painted by Dali in 1951 after inspiration for the sketches by a Spanish Friar in the 16 century after a 'vision' of Christ. Dali deliberately left out the nails and crown of thorns. Kelvingrove Art Gallery- Glasgow. A very Happy Christmas and prosperous New Year to everyone.Smile

Hmmm...

I'm not sure, generally, what I think of photos of paintings, unreconstructed.

But I really like the message this is giving - that Christmas is about Easter, and love is about redemption.

Happy Christmas to you, as well.

Whilst teaching at Empangeni High School in Natal a matric boy painted something very similar to this for his art exam. I was so impressed, now I know where he got his idea from Smile A super image Paul
