‘Cosmic Madonna’, an oil painting of Salvador Dali that fuses the Spanish surrealist artist’s interest in religion and nuclear science, has been rediscovered after its whereabouts became unknown for half a century and put up for sale by its owners.

The colorful 1958 canvas is titled ‘Cosmic Madonna’. Bernard Ewell, a member of the American Society of Appraisers, has been commissioned to evaluate the piece. “I was surprised to find a masterpiece of such stunning beauty and enormous impact”, has indicated, as reported by the owners in a statement.

In addition, they add that ‘Cosmic Madonna’ is the last Dalí masterpiece that can be acquired by a private buyer, since all other similar pieces are already in museums or private collections around the world.

Experts point out that the painting is a clear nod to Raphael’s ‘Sistine Madonna’, but painted in Dalí’s surreal mystical-nuclear style, marrying Dalí’s iconic surrealism with new discoveries in nuclear physics and religious themes.

The owners they claim to be already open to offers and they provide a space to get in touch on a website, although without an initial estimate of the work’s price. The website includes photographs of the painting and of Salvador Dalí in his studio in PortLligat posing with ‘Cosmic Madonna’.
