It is a painting of Christ (or a Christ figure at least) on a cross in the sky, but the sky is blue and the cross and Christ figure are broken into cubes.

 

For reference its like a cross (no pun intended) between Dali's 3 most famous "Christ" paintings:

 

 

 

Christ of St. John of the Cross - Salvador Dali Christ of St John of the Cross Art Print (especially the perspective of this)

 

 

 

 

Santiago El Grande - Santiago El Grande, c.1957(especially the colors)

 

 

 

 

and Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus) - Crucifixion (Corpus Hypercubus), 1954(except that the cubes were all a uniform size)

 

 

 

 

 

If anybody has clue ast to what I am talking about, please direct me to a link or post the picture....anything to let me know that this painting does exist

The Nuclear Cross? Everyone remembers his work in a different way at times. Your memory put a blue sky from another painting?

I had a Dali print over my bed in college and I have been unable to locate it.  It was a abstract jesus on the cross print. It was none of the prints already shown in this thread.  Any help would be most appreciated.

Hi

Does anyone know if Dali's painting 'The Faces of War' was painted based on the Spanish Civil War and/or WW2?

Do you mean The Face of War (1940)? It was painted directly after Dali fled Europe for the US at the start of WW2, so I'd say that would have been fresher in his mind than the Spanish Civil War, although it's most likely a reflection on the horror of war in general - the image of infinite death, realized through a mise en abyme effect: a face with every office stuffed with skulls, whose every orifice is stuffed with skulls, whose every orifice is stuffed with skulls etc.
