Soldiery of Heaven

Soldiery of Heaven


This painting is based on a woodcut by Gustave Dore to illustrate Dante's Divine Comedy. This is from Paradise XVIII, lines 124-126; ‘O soldiery of heaven, whom I contemplate, '/ Implore for those who are upon the Earth/ All gone astray after the bad example!’

This image is painted in acrylic on a Loxley Gold box canvas and has two layers of varnish. All edges are painted and varnished and it is signed on the reverse in pencil. The image size is 12.5cm x 25cm (5" x 10").

This is one of a series of paintings that I have created on this theme.
