In 1933 Salvador Dali separated from his fellow Surrealist artists and moved to New York. This moment has traditionally marked the shift in his work from Surrealist, typically understood as groundbreaking and original, to late. Often overshadowed by his early paintings, the latter half of Dalis artistic career is finally receiving due attention by scholars and museums as they demonstrate the true breadth of his oeuvre. Dali began exploring religious themes in his art as early as the 1940s; these would become recurring elements throughout his artistic career. 'King Solomon, 1975' is from the portfolio, Our Historical Heritage which depicts events and historical figures from the Hebrew scriptures, rendered with the typical vigor and energy only found in Dalis work.
