Lonely Planet review
Botticelli’s original illustrations for Dante’s Divine Comedy are among the prized possessions of art on paper held by the Museum of Prints and Drawings. This is one of the world’s largest and finest collections of its kind, a bonanza of hand-illustrated books, illuminated manuscripts, drawings and prints produced mostly in Europe from the 14th century onward – Dürer to Rembrandt to Schinkel, Picasso to Giacometti to Warhol.
The works don’t do well under light, which is why only a tiny fraction of the collection is shown on a rotating basis.
