These 1964 original gouache and watercolor paintings are part of Salvador Dalí’s suite of illustrations for a new edition of the Bible, referred to as the Biblia Sacra. The Portfolio was later published in 1969 by Rizzoli Editions, the Biblia Sacra and consisted of five volumes, bound in leather, containing text from the Bible. The suite was commissioned by Dalí’s good friend and leading Dalí patron Guiseppe Albaretto, who wanted to lead the artist to God and back to the Catholic Church. The bible consisted of 105 offset lithographic illustrations on heavy rag paper of various biblical scenes that were created after 105 original works created by Dalí. The illustrations, rich in both color and content, show the artist’s range of creativity as they exhibit a wide variety of imagery – some Christian and some based on classical mythology.
