BOTTICELLI: INFERNO is a fascinating investigation of the secrets behind Botticelli’s drawings, destined to show a surprising dark side of the renowned Renaissance artist, famous for peaceful and idyllic paintings such as THE BIRTH OF VENUS. Botticelli brought Dante’s descriptions to life in a series of 102 meticulous drawings. The centrepiece of these drawings is the MAP OF HELL: a kind of guide through hell with all its various levels. A fascinating, and at the same time cruel work on sinners and retribution, nightmares and punishment.
