I have been reading Dante's Inferno. Federica's seminar and her accompanying visuals added greatly to my understanding of Dante and Virgil's journey through Hell.
I'd known the drawings existed, and had even seen some in an exhibition. But Federica really made the drawings come to life in an interesting way. I'm looking forward to the next session on the Purgatorio drawings.
Excellent, well informed, structured, and illustrated lecture which conveyed, contextually, the dynamic cinemagraphic nature of Botticelli's drawings and paintings.
A brilliant comprehensive understanding of Dante’s canto as interpreted by Botticelli’s drawings.
This was an excellent presentation with lots of detail and background about Botticelli and each of the layers of the Inferno's passages. Great focus on individual elements in a drawing. Amazing really.
