In 1957, the Italian government commissioned Salvador Dalí to create 100 watercolors to illustrate Dante’s Divine Comedy, to coincide with the 700th anniversary of the famed poet’s birth. They quickly regretted their choice when the Italian public balked at having such an honor bestowed on a Spaniard. The project was canceled, but Dalí held up his end of the bargain anyway, creating images that run the gamut from gorgeous and soft to frankly terrifying.
