Copy on tracing paper by an unknown copyist of William Blake's design illustrating canto 29 of Dante's Inferno.
Traced sketch shows a rock-like arch or tower of bodies at far left and other naked figures sitting or lying on ground in a hilly landscape with flames and clouds; at right, Dante and Virgil stand on a rise overlooking the scene, as they cover their mouths or noses with their gowns.
