Dali uses a varied colored palette to illustrate Jesus, Mary, and Joseph in the manger. The warm blue tones surrounding Mary and the heavenly yellow shining from above contrast with the black patches on the far right. Perhaps Dali is foreshadowing Jesus's death on the cross amid this otherwise happy scene.

Salvador Dalí was an icon of Surrealism, the 20th-century avant-garde movement that sought to release unconscious creative potential through art that featured dreamlike imagery. Dalí’s fantastical prints, paintings, sculptures, films, and writing helped cement the movement’s identity. Working off psychoanalytic ideas, Dalí rendered fantastical creatures and landscapes that could unsettle and awe. His 1931 canvas The Persistence of Memory is one of the most recognizable artworks of all time. Dalí exhibited widely in his lifetime, and his works belong in the collections of institutions including the Tate, the Museum of Modern Art, and the Art Institute of Chicago, among others. His work has fetched multimillions of dollars on the secondary market.
