Christ of St. John of the Cross, c.1951
 
Description:
"Christ of Saint John of the Cross" depicts Jesus Christ on the cross in a darkened sky floating over a body of water complete with a boat and fishermen. Although it is a depiction of the crucifixion, it is devoid of nails, blood, and a crown of thorns, because, according to Dalí, he was convinced by a dream that these features would mar his depiction of Christ. Also in a dream, the importance of depicting Christ in the extreme angle, evident in the painting, was revealed to him. The painting is known as the "Christ of Saint John of the Cross," because its design is based on a drawing by the 16th century Spanish friar Saint John of the Cross. The composition of Christ is also based on a triangle and circle (the triangle is formed by Christ's arms; the circle is formed by Christ's head). The triangle, since it has three sides, can be seen as a reference to the Trinity, and the circle may be an allusion to Platonic thought. On the bottom of his studies for the painting, Dalí explained its inspiration: "In the first place, in 1950, I had a 'cosmic dream' in which I saw this image in color and which in my dream represented the 'nucleus of the atom.' This nucleus later took on a metaphysical sense; I considered it 'the very unity of the universe,' the Christ!" The original painting was acquired by Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery for £8,200, a price considered high at the time. The canvas was slashed by a visitor to the museum in 1961, but has since been successfully restored. In 1993, the painting was moved to the city's St Mungo Museum of Religious Life and Art, but returned to Kelvingrove for its reopening in July 2006.

Art Prints
All of our prints are produced on a quality paper and either supplied by one of the world’s leading art publishers or printed in our own in-house facilities. Most prints are on a thick (120 pound or higher) stock of paper and printed using a lithographic or serigraphic printing process.
Laminated Art Prints
Laminating your print or poster is an inexpensive and easy way to protect it from fading, dirt and finger prints. Both sides of the poster are laminated for maximum protection.
Gallery Wrapped Canvas Art
With the gallery wrap method, the image wraps around the edge, and continues back toward the wall. The art wraps around the sides of the canvas creating a gallery style look. This canvas treatment is ideal for seamless designs, abstract images, or imagery that has a central focus.
Museum Wrapped Canvas Art
With the museum wrap method, the image goes to the edge of the surface with plain white canvas exposed on the sides. This shows well with any image and can be hung on your wall with the sides left white, or the sides can be painted with one of our 18 custom colors to match or complement the colors of the piece.
Framed Canvas
Framing a canvas is the best of both worlds. You can still see the texture of the canvas as well as embellishing the sides with your choice of high quality frames. The canvas itself gets a museum wrapped treatment in order to allow for the widest assortment of frames. A framed canvas' finished thickness is dependent on the depth of the frame that you choose.
Canvas Brushstrokes
Brushstrokes can be applied to your canvas using a clear acrylic gel that adds additional texture to the canvas, helping to recreate the feel of the original painting. For most canvas pieces, regular brushstrokes will look most natural and true to the original, but heavy brushstrokes are also available to add more texture if desired.
Framed Art
All of our framing is done in-house by expert craftsman. We use quality moldings from the industry’s leading suppliers and custom frame each piece when your order is placed.
Mats for Custom Framing
We offer a wide selection of vibrant colors for our pH neutral mats and allow you to choose from various mat widths, depending on the size of your print. The option to choose one, two or three mats for your print allows you to further customize the look of your finished piece.
Glazing Options
To finished your framed piece, we offer both glass and plexi-glass options, depending on the size of your print. Our standard options in both glass and plexi-glass are our most budget friendly way to protect your prints. We also offer non-glare options to greatly reduce reflection and glare from lights and for 99% UV protection and amazing clarity, choose our Museum Glass option.
