In 1950, The National Library of Italy signed a contract with Dalí for him to illustrate Dante’s “The Divine Comedy”, but the project got canceled. Dalí, however, was enthralled by the work of Dante and decided to offer the project to the French publisher, Joseph Forêt. Between 1951 and 1964 was immersed in creating watercolor prints, illustrating the 14,000 verses of Dante Alighieri’s “The Divine Comedy”. This print is an exquisite part of this process. It was issued as a Limited Edition of "The Divine Comedy" in 1962. The image here depicts two figures in purple earth tones on a vast, seemingly endless expanse. The figures are gazing at the sky, an acknowledgment of their entrapment in Purgatory (the composite of blue and red).
The print is numbered and framed in a minimalistic silver metal frame.
