Picturing Dante/Above the Southern Ocean ​(Purgatorio Cantos 716)

The return of this popular series at twice its original length as THE COURSE makes its contribution to celebrations across the world to mark the 750th anniversary of the birth of the poet Dante Alighieri in Florence in 1265.

What Botticelli, Flaxman, Blake, Gustav Doré, Salvador Dalì and others drew and painted when they read Dante, in The Divine Comedy, speaking of what he saw, on a journey no man had ever made before, through Hell, Purgatory and Paradise.


Dante dreams his way to Purgatory's gate above the shore and then himself has to undergo its dramatic spiritual assault course up seven cornices, on each of which a deadly sin is purged. He feels the healing power of visual art and meets those struggling to be rid of their Pride, Envy and Wrath.
