Modern illustrations for Renaissance Man (1969 - 1969)

Dante Alighieri translator: Thomas Goddard Bergin

The Divine Comedy

Date: 1969 - 1969

Bergin (1904 -1987) says of The Divine Comedy that it 'is everything: a personal confession, a vast love lyric, an encyclopedia of the knowledge of the Middle Ages ... and of course quite simply an absorbing narrative'. Leonard Baskin (1922-2000), sculptor artist and wood engraver, was commissioned to create the Franklin Delano Roosevelt Memorial and the Woodrow Wilson Memorial, both in Washington D.C., and the Holocaust Memorial in Ann Arbor, MI.
