William Blake's Divine Comedy Illustrations
102 Full-color PlateseBook - 2008
Commissioned in 1824 ? just three years before his death ? Blake's sublime watercolors are not only peerless interpretations of Dante's vision of Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven, they are dramatic expressions of the great artist's integrity and imagination. Some apocalyptic, others angelic, the 102 plates range from completely finished pieces to rough sketches.
