Path to Paradise: The Artistic Legacy of Dante’s Divine Comedy
By Rollins Museum of Art

With its graphic depictions of eternal punishment and redemption, Dante’s Divine Comedy has served as an artistic and moral template for artists, writers, politicians, and religious leaders since its original publication. This exhibition showcases works inspired by The Divine Comedy completed from the Italian Quattrocento through the contemporary era, illustrating the profound and limitless artistic inspiration drawn from Dante’s source text. Featuring diverse works by artists including Baccio Baldini and Tom Peterson alongside archival texts, Path to Paradise seeks to trace the artistic legacy of Dante’s seminal work through time. Path to Paradise: The Artistic Legacy of Dante’s Divine Comedy is guest curated by Rollins alumnus Isaac Gorres, ’21 in collaboration with the Rollins College Archives and Special Collections at Olin Library.
