Between 1951 and 1960, Dalí was invited by the Italian government to commemorate the birth of Dante Alighieri, Italy’s most famous poet, by producing a series of illustrations for a full-text Deluxe edition of Dante’s masterpiece, the Divine Comedy. In 1958, a new government was elected in Italy, which objected to the idea of entrusting the illustration of the Divine Comedy to a foreign artist. As a result, he decided to offer the project to the French publisher, Joseph Forêt and the publication was completed the 23rd of November 1963.

Dalí had painted 100 watercolors in preparation for the publication of “The Divine Comedy.” These watercolors explored the many myths and elements of this magnificent work of literature by the great Dante Alighieri. These drawings are then reproduced using a wood engraving technique.
