Picturing Dante

26 October 2010 – 23 November 2010

The Art of Dante’s Divine Comedy. Described by T.S. Eliot as ‘the highest point that poetry has ever reached or ever can reach’, Dante’s epic poem Divine Comedy, describing a journey through Hell, Purgatory and Heaven, has been a rich source of inspiration for generations of artists, poets, sculptors and illustrators.

In this series of lectures we’ll discover how Dante’s poem has influenced the likes of Botticelli, Salvador Dali, John Flaxman, Gustave Dore and William Blake; and how Dante’s tales of love and the grotesque has influenced their work.
