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. 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.
Salvador Dali has always been fascinated by Freud’s theory of the Unconscious, and the unconscious dream like imagery of surrealism. This image clearly shows his attention to detail and it is easy to see where he gets his inspiration from. In this lithograph a dream-like Esther has taken up residence in the mind of Ahasuerus, floating there, occupying all his thoughts – and in a sense trapped there.
This piece comes in a ornate silver frame, with white matting.
