Chrystus św. Jana od Krzyża. Salvador Dalí jako ekscentryczny mistyk i postmodernista
Christ of the St. John of the Cross. Salvador Dalí as an Eccentric Mystic and postmodern
Languages of publication
This article is an attempt to both artistic and aesthetic analysis of Salvador Dalí’s Christ of St. John of the Cross as an image representing the main demands of the postmodern aesthetics. The applied research perspective allows to go beyond the traditional relation between postmodernism and the Great Avant-garde. This relation is based on indicating of what postmodernism took over from the earlier trends of avant-garde and surrealism in particular. The proposed reverse perspective refers to another, enriching relationship. It points directly at the early surrealistic discoveries which were used in a field of twentieth century art long before the rise of the postmodern aesthetics.
