This is an original lithograph from Salvador Dali’s Biblia Sacra series. Dali was commissioned to create a series of images based on passages from the Bible. He created a total of 105 works making it the largest suite of prints by the artist. 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.
This violent and chaotic print illustrates the story of Noah’s intoxication after drinking too much wine from his vineyard. Noah, passed out and undressed, is shown lying on the ground in the lower right of the image. His two sons who clothe him stand above him. Although they are the central figures in the story, they are not the focus of the image. Instead, Dali paints a splattered mass which forms an outline of a lion in the middle and a talon grasping at grapes below.
