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 depicts the very centre of hell, where Satan himself punishes those guilty of the worse sin of all: betraying a benefactor.
