L'Inferno di Dante. A collection of largely unknown graphic works by the sculptor, Auguste Rodin. The drawings inspired by Dante’s “Inferno” were printed in 1897 in a book published by Goupil & Cie, a pioneer publishing house in reproducing the work of artists.
This compilation of 129 works was called the “Fenaille album” because it was financed by Maurice Fenaille, a member of the French Académie des Beaux-Arts. Thanks to this publication, we have this graphic series by Rodin, which were reproduced using photoengraving – a new technique at the time.
