Last Supper (Gold)

Details:

After World War II, Salvador Dali returned to the Catholic Church, and as a result of his renewed faith, he began to investigate traditional Christian artistic themes and theological ideas. He merged Christian mysticism with the modern, scientific understanding of nuclear physics, and he dubbed his unique artistic style Nuclear Mysticism. As part of Dali’s experimental Nuclear Mystical style, he produced numerous works along the theme of The Last Supper. To this date, the most famous is his 1955 painting, The Sacrament of the Last Supper based on Leonard da Vinci’s painting of the subject. Dali’s well known rendition of the painting now resides in the permanent collection of The National Gallery of Art in Washington D.C.

Returning to the subject in 1978, Dali made the wax mold for The Last Supper bas-relief sculpture, which is fully recorded in the catalogue raisonné. After Dali’s mold was pressed into copper and altered to allow for production, this limited edition this bas-relief sculpture was issued which was coated with nickel and finished with an electroplated patina.
