    During the 1950's Salvador Dali was commissioned to illustrate The Divine Comedy by Dante Alighieri. Dali created 101 watercolours to represent scenes from Dante's travels through Inferno, Purgatory and Paradise. The extravagantly surrealistic art works were not well received by the public, however, work began on the engraving of woodblocks, chosen as the best medium to represent the nuances of Dali's compositions into print format. The woodblocks were destroyed after printing. The Divine Comedy is held to be one of Dali's masterpieces and the artist himself considered this series to be among his most important works.
