Beginning in 1958, Rauschenberg embarked on a series of illustrations representing each canto of Dante’s Inferno. He invented a way of making transfers of magazine images using lighter fluid, which he then drew over with pencil and watercolour. This work relates to Dante’s journey through the eighth circle of hell, where sowers of discord are attacked by a sword- wielding demon.
