Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus) – Salvador Dali

oil on canvas – 194.3cm x 123.8cm – 1954

Metropolitan Museum Of Art, New York City

The realism makes this surrealistic piece very convincing. His perspective is unparalleled. The depth of the landscape is wonderful. And some great cast shadows. I saw this painting in New York. After standing in front of it for a long time, I kept coming back to it again and again … while my wife patiently waited for me in the museum cafe! As a long time Dali fan, I had been aware of this piece for long time, but to actually see it was something more powerful than I had anticipated. Seeing it was like an achievement that I can cross off my bucket list.
