The work "Explosion of the mystical faith" by Salvador Dalí replaces the "Virgen de la Roca" by Rafael, which could be seen until the beginning of January at the Dalí Museum-Theater in Figueres, and focuses on the second part of the exhibition "Dali-Rafael .A long dream." & # 39; & # 39; Explosion of mystical faith & # 39; is a large and little known painting, which until today was in the corner of a & # 39; installation under the dome and could be seen through the reflection of a mirror Visitors can now see it in the Hall of the Loggies in its entirety and accompanied by two sketches of the creative process, as well as other elements of the first phase of the exhibition.
The painting will occupy the site of the "Verge de la Roca" by Rafael, which had been temporarily loaned from the Museo del Prado during the "De vuelta por España" campaign. In November, the Dalí Theater-Museum inaugurated the exhibition with the "Virgen de la Roca" and, on the one hand, "The ascension of Santa Cecilia" by Dalí. The show became a reality, posthumously, one of Dali's dreams: that his works were exhibited alongside those of Rafael, whom he admired throughout his life.
Dalí realizes the dream of exhibiting with Rafael
Performed between 1959 and 1974, "The explosion of the mystical faith" has multiple readings, including the reproduction of a painting by Rafael, the "Saint Catherine of Alexandria". Dalí put the mystic figure in the middle of a nebula in the Basilica of St. Peter of the Vatican. The exhibition, which can be seen throughout the year, also includes drawings, books, photographs and the screening of various Dalí interviews.
