Beschreibung

Salvador Dalí s much loved painting Le Christ (1951) seems to portray the crucified Christ looking down protectively on the Sea of Galilee, where there are an ancient nobleman, a fisherman and his boat, and a modern-suited man. Yet Le Christ has attracted academic suspicion of its intentions, as also physical assaults from members of the public. Dalí s conversion to Catholicism in 1941 it fitted with his breaking with conventional Surrealism and his siding with Franco in Spain s civil war. Yet Le Christ gives rise to doubts as to its straightforward religiosity. Dalí s Christ is not conspicuously suffering: there are no nails, no blood, no sweat and no crown of thorns, but many reminders of Dalí s beloved home of Port Lligat and of his sex-mad wife, Gala, who had escaped from Russian Communism. Christ s face is obscured and there is no title on the Cross indicating who is being crucified instead just a piece of paper lifted from a painting by Dalí s hero, Velazquez. So Dali probably saw and painted himself as the Christ-like figure on his Cross. Dalí believed he was born to save the world from modern non-realist art -- though not by the route of martyrdom.
