"Sandro Botticelli and Dante's Divina Comedia"
2000-04-15 until 2000-06-18
Kupferstichkabinett
Berlin, , DE Germany

The Florentine painter Sandro Boticelli created a series of colorized illustrations between 1480 and 1495 for the first world famous work of Italian literature - Dante's Divina Comedia. Some of the colourized drawings describe the journey of the poet and narrator Dante Alighieri through the three stages of the afterworld: Hell, Läuterungsberg and Paradise.

However, soon after their creation the works on paper mysteriously disappeared; only some of their provenances to their present owners are fully known. A few of them are now owned by the Vatican Library but most of them have been owned by the Kupferstichkabinett in Berlin since 1882.

For the first time all 92 existing illustrations can be viewed in addition to other very valuable book illustration and drawings by Botticelli (some from Florence, Washington New York, London) at the Kulturforum.
