Dante's Inferno - Gustave Dore - Centaurs Satan Hell
Item Details
Description
Dante Alighieri (1265-1321) Inferno.
This illustration from Gustave Dore (French, 1832 - 1883) was part of Dante Alighieri's Dante's Inferno, the work was edited by Pollard & Moss and published in 1887 in New York.

Inferno is the first part of the 14th century Italian writer Dante Alighieri's epic "The Divine Comedy" and was followed by Purgatorio and Paradiso. Inferno describes Dante's journey through hell under the direction of the ancient Roman poet Virgil. In the poem, hell is depicted as a torment of nine concentric circles located in the inner earth; it is the "realm ... of those who have rejected spiritual values by yielding to bestial appetites or violence, or by perverting their human intellect to fraud or malice against their fellowmen". As an allegory, the Divine Comedy depicts the soul's journey to God, and hell depicts the recognition and rejection of sin.

Dante Alighieri was an Italian poet, writer, and philosopher. His Divine Comedy, originally called the Comedy and later named Divina by Giovanni Boccaccio, is widely regarded as one of the most important poems of the Middle Ages and the greatest literary work in Italian.

Gustave Dore (1832-1883) was a French graphic artist, illustrator, painter, cartoonist and sculptor. He is best known for his prolific woodcut prints, especially those depicting classic books, including 241 that depict the Bible. The works were a huge international success, and he is the most famous artist in the technique, although his role is usually just that of a designer; at the peak of his career some 40 block-cutters were employed to cut his drawings onto the wooden printing blocks.
