"Santiago El Grande" is Spanish for St. James the Great, and here Dali pays spectacular tribute to the Apostle St. James, the patron saint of Spain. He's shown astride a monumental rearing steed that rises victorious from the sea, dappled in scallop shells, as his - and the entire painting's - upward motion signifies Christ's, and ultimately man's, ascension toward Heaven. The crucified Christ figure is one of the most glorious ever captured on canvas, complete with radiant bands of eternal light emanating from his perfect form - here replacing the sword often seen in statues of the same heroic theme. Spanish artist Salvador Dali (1904 - 1989) was a ground-breaking icon of the Surrealist movement and one of the greatest artists of the 20th century. His work probed the unconscious world of thoughts, dreams and perception in fanciful and nightmarish images influenced by Freud, Cubism, Futurism and metaphysical art. Extraordinarily imaginative, he also sculpted, and contributed to fashion, photography and theatre. Dali's art has been called the epitome of Surrealism.
