I went away for a few days to Glasgow...the home of many architecturally wonderful buildings. I visited the Kelvingrove art gallery and museum when I was there which is the home to Christ of Saint John of the Cross by Salvador Dalí. It is a hugely impressive painting of oil on canvas and stands 205 cm × 116 cm (80.7 in × 45.67 in). I first saw the painting when I was in my teens and at art college and the impression it had on me has stayed with me ever since. Painted in only 1951 it has more of a renaissance feel due to the subject matter and the rich dark oils. It is an imposing piece.
The Kelvingrove art gallery houses many wonderful works..painting and statues and over the coming weeks you will see a few chosen ones on my Flickr stream and over here on my Blog.
