    Dante’s Inferno: The Illustrations of Amos Nattini is a new exhibition organized by the Schuster Gallery,which will be displayed for the first time in our new gallery space at Gannon University from February 20 to April 20, 2015. 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.

    Donations support the Gannon T.R.A.V.E.L. program and their upcoming trip to Italy.
