Picturing Dante/Vision's Pinnacle (Paradiso Cantos 2333)

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.


Traversing the final cantos of his Comedy through Paradise's ever more unimaginable heavenscape, Dante challenges his future illustrators to speak in paint of sights and sounds he claims to have seen in the Spheres of the Primum Mobile and the Empyrean, far too wonderful to even breathe of here.
