Dali / El Greco: Christ on the Cross

Featuring Dali’s Christ of St John of the Cross, on loan from Glasgow Life Museums, and El Greco’s Christ on the Cross, the display and invites visitors to consider their own response to the work of these two radical artists.
Separated by nearly 350 years, both artists were innovative in their own time – El Greco with his deeply expressive use of exaggerated form and colour, and Dalí with his dream-like compositions rendered in lucid detail – and each artist offers a deeply contrasting perspective on the theme of Christ on the Cross.
Dali’s Christ of St John of the Cross is one of the most celebrated and reproduced images of the 20th century, and this is the first time the painting has been on display in the North East.
