This is a woodblock print after a watercolor by Salvador Dali. This work is part of Dali’s Divine Comedy suite, a collection of 100 illustrations based on Dante’s famous poem. This image is from the Inferno section. Dali depicts one of the rivers of the underworld, the Phlegethon. The bright orange color, representing the fires of hell, is balanced by the cool blue, which represents the water.
