Limited edition, one of 500 numbered sets, of Monika Beisner’s one hundred illustrations of the Divine Comedy, each accompanying one canto, conveying with remarkable fidelity the vivacity of Dante’s verse.

‘Realising the importance of written text as a stimulus to her art, [Beisner] embarked on a successful career as an illustrator of children’s books which earned her an international reputation and exhibitions worldwide. In these books, as in all her work, images are always more than illustrations, her aim being to make image and text speak to each other, guided by the principle that the pleasure of looking encourages careful reading and vice versa. In 1992 she undertook a seven-year project to illustrate Dante’s Commedia. Many artists have illustrated several cantos but few have illustrated all one hundred, as Monika Beisner has done. Her paintings are now part of Livio Ambrogio’s prestigious Dante collection and have been published with Dante’s Italian text and also alongside German and English translations.’
