Dr Albaretto was a great friend of Salvador Dali. Aware of his friend’s supreme talents in the visual arts, and hoping to simultaneously deepen Dali’s appreciation of religion. In 1963 he commissioned these illustrations of the Bible.
Dali obliged and diligently selected passages of his choice from the Bible between 1964 -1969. He created a stunning series of 105 lithographs to accompany the religious text, which were published by Rizzoli with Dr Alberto as overseer and editor.
In 1986, a curated selection of Dalí’s Bible lithographs was produced by Rizzoli as an Exclusive World Edition, entitled 40 Paintings of the Bible.
