DANTE'S DIVINE COMEDY

Erik Heyninck

Peter Van Oostzanen

Reinhard Schmid

From 2 August to 27 September in the Old Town Hall of Viechtach (Germany, Bavaria, Lower Bavaria, Bavarian Forest), an exhibition of world-class art is on view: 52 artists from all over the world have worked with one of the most famous works of world literature and are showing their interpretation: Dante's Divine Comedy. In "La Divina Commedia" by Dante Alighieri, which was created by 1307 to 1327, Dante describes his own journey through the other side, led by the great Roman poet Virgil. The trail leads Dante through the three levels of the Hereafter: to hell, the catharsis and ultimately into a mountain paradise, where he encounters God and comes face to face with the Holy Trinity. Dante's Divine Comedy has over the centuries inspired many well-known visual artists, as now in this monumental international exhibition in Viechtach. Curator Claus Brusen (Denmark) gathered the world's most renowned representatives of the fantastic art , based on their own individual style and in depth knowledge of the medieval literature. The exhibitors include local artist Reinhard Schmid (Viechtach) and Richard Pernsteiner (St. Englmar).
The exhibition can be viewed during the opening times of the Tourist Information Viechtach, tel 09942/1661 with free admission to visitors.
