Abstract:

"Dante's Divine Comedy, one of the masterworks of European literature, has inspired artists from Botticelli to William Blake, and from Gustave Dore to Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Phillips. The great English Neoclassical sculptor, John Flaxman, is no exception." "Flaxman's drawings for the Divine Comedy are published for the first time in this volume. Famous for his designs for Wedgwood, Flaxman illustrated all 100 cantos of Dante's poem. The book includes the complete series of drawings, together with the preparatory studies, accompanied by Flaxman's annotations. A critical commentary on each drawing completes this book, an important addition to Dante studies and Flaxman scholarship."--BOOK JACKET.
