Artwork Title: The Enlightened Dante - Artist Name: Salvador Dalí

The Enlightened Dante

Salvador Dalí

Woodcut # 67 by Salvador Dalí, for stanza # 33. A surrealistic angel commands this picture, which concludes the Purgatorio. The artist depicts the enlightenment by using the image of both a window and a passageway. The angel is facing the poet (just like the viewer). The poet walks toward us. We see him through the angel, whose intensive, heavenly blue fills most of the rest of the picture.
