Mae’r pwnc dychmygol hwn yn anghyffredin iawn ymhlith gweithiau Millet. Mae’n cyfeirio at ran o gerdd Inferno Dante, sy’n disgrifio gwynt nerthol yn chwyrlio eneidiau’r rhai chwantus drwy awyr fawr uffern. Roedd y gerdd epig hon yn ysbrydoliaeth gyson i artistiaid, fel y dengys Millet. Enghraifft ddiweddarach o’r traddodiad hwn yw cerflun Y Gusan gan Auguste Rodin.

I saw this yesterday at the St. Louis Art Museum. It's amazing. One of my favorites in the exhibition.

Hi Ashley,

I have spoken to a colleague in the Art dept, and the date for this painting is noted as 1847-49.

Hope this helps!

Does the museum have a suggested date for this work?

As advised above this is an evocation of a frequently produced motif, that of the tragic figures of Paolo and Francesca, in Dante's Inferno, murdered by Paolo's jealous brother Gianciotto and condemned to the stormy darkness of hell's second circle. Another very fine picture, in a highly ornamental carved frame,is that painted by Ary Scheffer in 1835, in the Wallace Collection. Originally in the collection of Anatole Demidoff, Prince of San Donato,it would be interesting to know if Millet was aware of the existence of this quite famous picture at the time he produced his version. The pose, although not the same, is not that dissimilar

I am wondering if it is possible to purchase a print of this wonderful painting? If so how do I go about it?

Dear Sarah, thank you for your comment -
The art galleries have a changing programme of displays which means that works are sometimes not on display. When the work is on display again Art Online will be updated with the gallery information.

I love this painting and have done since I first started to visit the museum many years ago, I wonder why it is no longer on display?
