La Divina commedia
The Divine Comedy Illustrated by Botticelli is a manuscript of the Divine Comedy by Dante, illustrated by 92 full-page pictures by Sandro Botticelli that are considered masterpieces and among the best works of the Renaissance painter. Started around the mid 1480s, Botticelli worked on these drawings for about a decade in Florence and they are certainly a testament to his artistry and innovative genius. The images are mostly not taken beyond silverpoint drawings, many worked over in ink, but four pages are fully colored. The manuscript eventually disappeared and most of it was rediscovered in the late nineteenth century.
