Dante's Inferno: The Illustrations of Amos Nattini

Date(s): Aug. 25, 2014 - Dec. 1, 2014
Event Time: 8 AM - 9 PM

Organized by the Canton Museum of Art, this new exhibition will be displayed for the first time in the Atrium Gallery of the Birk Center for the Arts at Walsh University from August 25 to December 1, 2014. The exhibition is comprised of 34 color lithographic illustrations, created by the Italian artist Amos Nattini for a special Elephant edition of The Inferno published in Milan in 1928. The book was purchased in Italy by a Cleveland physician of Italian heritage, assisted by a number of Italian-Americans, and presented in 1929 to the Canton Public Library. In 1942 the book, considered a valuable artifact, was transferred to the Canton Museum of Art, where it was in storage for many years. The Nattini lithographs were removed for display as early as 1982, but only recently were they professionally matted and framed to a 30 x 40 " format. Each image (16 ½ x 26 ½ ), one for each Canto, is accompanied by a text panel with a brief quote from the Canto it illustrates in Italian and English. The complete exhibition extends approximately 165 linear feet, including introductory panels and credits.

This exhibition has been made possible by the Stark-Tuscarawas-Wayne Join Solid Waste Recycling Program through North Canton City Council and the Sons of Italy Grand Lodge of Ohio.

The exhibition is free and open to the public, daily 8 am - 9 pm. For more information, contact Katey Brown, ktbrown@walsh.edu or 330-490-7509.
