OIL PAINTING:  The Ghosts of Paolo and Francesca Appear to Dante and Virgil,1835

      The painting by Ary Scheffer illustrates a famous episode from the fifth canto of Dante's Inferno, in which Dante and Virgil see Paolo and Francesca condemned to the darkness of Hell with the souls of the lustful. This is the prime version of a composition Scheffer repeated several times and it has a frame which he specially devised to suit the subject.
