A large monotype depicting the story of Beatrice and Lucifer. While Dante was fighting in the crusades, Beatrice made a bet with Lucifer, if Dante kept his promise during the Crusades, Lucifer would ensure that he return home safely, but if Dante slept with another woman, she would have to give her soul to Lucifer. But while Dante was gone, he slept with a Slave Girl offering him “comfort” in exchange to be free, making Beatrice lose the bet and was sent to hell to be married to Lucifer.
