Item description for The Illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy by John Flaxman...

Dante's Divine Comedy, one of the masterworks of European literature, has inspired artists from Botticelli to William Blake, and from Gustave Dor to Robert Rauschenberg and Tom Phillips. The great English Neoclassical sculptor John Flaxman (1755-1826) is no exception.

Flaxman's drawings for the Divine Comedy are published for the first time in this handsome volume. Famous for his designs for Wedgwood, Flaxman illustrated all 99 cantos of Dante's poem. The book includes the complete series of drawings, together with the preparatory studies accompanied by rhymes composed by Flaxman himself. A critical commentary on each drawing completes this magnificent book, an important addition to Dante studies and Flaxman scholarship. AUTHOR BIO: David Bindman is professor of history of art at University College, London. Carlo Ossola is professor of literature at the College of France. Francesca Salvadori is a historian who has worked extensively on Flaxman's notebooks.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Illustrations for Dante's Divine Comedy?

Stunning  Mar 27, 2007
This book is a weighty large format hardback with well reproduced drawings by John Flaxman. The illustrations contain both Flaxmans preliminary drawings and final versions. Flaxman is not well known as an artist but the design work, detail and structure of these drawings is amazing.
