William Blake: Dante Illustrations

This is an illustration for Dante's Inferno by the astounding British artist, William Blake (1757-1827); you can find out more about Blake at Wikipedia, and here is a lovely article at BrainPickings about Blake and Dante: William Blake’s Breathtaking Drawings for Dante’s Divine Comedy.

Here are some of my favorites:


The Vision of the Three Beasts



The Stygian Lake, with the Ireful Sinners Fighting



Minos



The Circle of the Lustful

Antaeus
