"(Ital.) Florence. Dante and giotto, 44 x 32. One of dante's frequent visits to giotto, the great reviver of painting in Italy. The poet is reciting portions of the 'Inferno' to the painter seated at his work. The period would be about the year 1300. The composition lacks dignity and strength, and the coloring is indifferent."
