Contemplation of Dali's "Crucifixion" at the MET

10 x 8 Oil on Gessobord

This man was totally consumed with Salvador Dali's painting "Crucifixion...Corpus Hypercubus" at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City.  I watched him study the painting for about 10 minutes and was interested to see his face as he walked away, but he just kept standing there so I eventually moved on.  I was surprised that this was a Dali painting because it is so unlike any other I've seen.  His depiction added many elements of surrealism but was so unexpected considering the subject matter.
