Description
William Blake’s Matilda and Dante on the Banks of the Lethe, 1824-7, exhibition print.

In Dante’s Divine Comedy, Matilda is a beautiful woman who represents the active life of the soul. She stands on the Earthly Paradise side of the river Lethe, and offers to answer Dante’s questions. She tells him to look at Beatrice’s procession, which can be seen in Blake’s painting behind Matilda. Blake illustrated Dante’s Divine Comedy at the request of John Linnell from 1824.

William Blake (1757 – 1827) was an English poet and artist. Blake trained as an engraver and had a career in etching, engraving and illustration. His watercolours were exhibited at the Royal Academy, but from 1780 he railed against academic art, insisting instead on individual inspiration. Although he received little public recognition in his lifetime, he has since been hailed as one of Britain’s greatest artists.

All our exhibition prints measure 30 x 40 cm and include a white border with full artwork credit line.

Our exhibition prints are produced using 10 colour digital giclée printing processes on fine art paper. We work with only UK based PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forestry Certification) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified suppliers for all our print products.
