The Christ

The Christ, an exceptional painting by Salvador Dalí from the collection of the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum in Glasgow, will be on view in a temporary exhibition at the Dalí Theatre-Museum in Figueres (Catalonia, Spain) from 1st November 2023 to 30th April 2024.

For the first time at the Dalí Theatre-Museum, given the importance of this exhibition, the entire Loggias area at Galatea Tower ─Dalí’s last house─ is being prepared to display an exhibition centred on this iconic painting and the creative process behind it.

This exhibition allows us to revisit a piece that had not been seen in Spain since 1952, when it was shown in Madrid and Barcelona. More importantly, it enables us to delve into the artist’s universe and explore the importance of Dalí’s studio in the Mediterranean Bay of Portlligat (Cadaqués), set in a landscape without which this painting would not acquire its full significance. The exhibition project provides the art lovers with new contributions based on recent research, preparatory drawings, and archive material, some of which has never been shown to date.

One of Dalí’s most iconic master pieces

Dalí painted the Christ in 1951 as the closing of a period of transformation and the culmination of his desire to become a classic and the “saviour” of modern painting. He returns to the postulates of quantum mechanics and introduces religious figures into his oeuvre because of the evolution of his thought. The Christ is the painting that links two creative periods, serving as a transition and helping us understand the vital moment the artist was experiencing at the time.
