Description

This set of lithographs were made by Salvador Dali as illustration for the  new edition of the Bible. Salvador Dali’s close friend and patron Dr. Giuseppe  Albaretto who was very dedicated to the Catholic church, hoped that reading the Bible prior to making illustrations would bring Dali closer to God.

The suite ‘Biblia Sacra’ consists of 105 lithographs created from original gouaches. The lithographs are on a heavy paper and are signed in the block.
