Cat. no. 752

Untitled
Saint Peter's Basilica
Explosion of Mystical Faith in the Midst of a Cathedral

Artist's collection

According to the bibliography of the time, this work is known as the "St. Peter's Basilica". However, we have added the title "Explosion of Mystical Faith in the Midst of a Cathedral", which is how we identify it, on the basis of the testimony of Antoni Pitxot, Director of the Dalí Theatre-Museum until 2015.

We date this painting to c. 1974, although for more than ten years (specifically between 1959-73) it remained in the studio at Portlligat in various states of execution. Dalí probably worked on it during 1972-73 but we cannot be absolutely certain of this.
