The painting of the Spanish surrealist artist Salvador Dalí is full of dreams and “visions”, but much of his art came from the mind, for example the idea of depicting in the presented picture a sweep of Hypercube instead of a cross.
Thus, the artist encounters a clear geometric form and suffering of Christ, underlined by his curved body with an outstretched thorax. This gives rise to a special tension with which the canvas is filled. So Dali seems to make it clear that God is crucified by the callousness and coldness of the world.
In this work, Dalí continues the tradition of classical
In the canvas “The Crucifixion, or Hypercubic Body,” written by Dali in his homeland after returning from America, was reflected in the Spanish religious temperament – passionate and at times ecstatic.
