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.
Elijah is depicted in black paint ascending into heaven. The wispy splatter of paint that circles around Elijah represents a chariot and the broader splatters of paint surrounding the chariot represent fire. This piece shows off Dali’s talent in creating movement with his unique brushstrokes.
This piece comes with a gold ornate frame with white matting.
