DAVTE ND DEATRICE.

-Ifter the Painting by Henry Hulutav.

MONG all the paintings suggested by the « Divine Comedy ) none per

haps is more fully inspired by Dante's own spirit than this by

Holiday. It will be noticed that in the face of Beatrice he gives us a strong suggestion of Dante's own most pronounced characteristics. It is fairly inferible that he meaus to make her stand not only for « Heaveniy Love » but for Dante's own ideal self.
