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.
