In 1933 Salvador Dali had his first one-man show in New York. One year later he visited the U.S. for the first time supported by a loan of US$500 from Pablo Picasso. To evade World War II, Dali chose the U.S.A. as his permanent residence in 1940.

Shortly after moving, he began a series of religious paintings in the USA.

Christ of Saint John of the Cross is a painting by Salvador Dalímade in 1951. It depicts Jesus Christ on the cross in a darkened sky floating over a body of water complete with a boat and fishermen. Although it is a depiction of the crucifixion, it is devoid of nails, blood, and a crown of thorns, because, according to Dalí, he was convinced by a dream that these features would mar his depiction of Christ.Also in a dream, the importance of depicting Christ in the extreme angle evident in the painting was revealed to him.
