129: Cross Nov 2013

The full title of this painting is Christ of Saint John of the Cross, 1951 by Salvador Dali. Saint John of the Cross was a Spanish monk born in 1542. Dali took a sketch by Saint John showing the crucifixion from an odd perspective and added that inimitable Dali touch. The painting hangs in the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, Glasgow. It is the size of a door.
