11:18 pm
. now they're opening their doors for us. ah, daylight can be fatal to writings and works of art. so the vatican shields these treasures from light and other destructive environmental influences, preserving them for posterity. ah, only rarely a particularly important manuscript, some works of art allowed to leave the climate controlled chambers. ah, only rarely to the doors of the apostolic library opened to allow a glimpse of one of history's great works of art a glimpse of the inferno, but it chillies inferno. mm
11:19 pm
. in an inconspicuous vatican complex, but a charlie's map of hell is undergoing an unparalleled process of digital conservation. it is the foundation of new discoveries in art history. the scientific scanning of manuscripts is a means of both preservation, undiscovered, safeguarding the old, something new emerges. ah, but he jellies depiction of the circles of hell. the map ardelane found though, in a special high powered lodge full max scanner. the high resolution functions like a digital magnifying glass details, pigments and shades a captured with more depth and density than the human eye can see.
11:20 pm
we're looking at the original. our human eye is limited. but zooming in the file, probably some detail can come out, but didn't came out before i got them all with us. some of these details being seen for the very 1st time did bought a chelly height, something within this work of out 500 years ago. far from rome, i sondra multi charlie, come from the city of artists and geniuses from the flourishing by flora sharon's his architecture. it's ali ways and cobblestones are imbued with history even today. well since suffering beauty and trace death. but he chelly was born and raised in
11:21 pm
a small street in the unused sanity neighbourhood. a son broke the jelly, actually one of the most famous faces in the world. well, that was not his real name. the real name of the office was sun, little philippe, be song of marianna safety is law son of a very number of families. by the way, there are lots of conjectures about how they begun to call in this way. some say that they have as likely separate elder son like a barrel, which is the talent is bought, spelled b o double t. that's why the said the little barrel bought the charlie mm. buddy jenny's father and his living. as a tanner sandra was sent to a goldsmith's workshop where he learned to work with precious metals and jewelry. ah. but all that glitters is not
11:22 pm
gold because i'm in to work as a goldsmith. it was not an easy thing. lots of furnace is around those really warm environments which was nearly unbearable. so what the charlie, though, looking around active bottega, his father actually began though to show an interest to sketch a little things or go sketchy, was actually necessary to shape any sort of thing. and he saw the ring, and he saw the bracelet and he's a likely and actually began to grown interest much more on sketch. and then, of course, standing at the bottega, that's why right the thought to try to dedicate himself to things in activity. the mid 15th century, florence is at the heart of the rene sounds and a center of progressive thinking. many people as they talk about the human is and the renee's, if you think about something incredibly idolized, but it's not the truth to have them agile of life in absolute poverty in death.
11:23 pm
imagine other senior farmers has been struck several gone by flags. the average people mentality was still very deeply rooted in the middle ages. i mean, what were interesting, i mean, to try to find a way of getting out of in salem. mm. bye. robotics having come from a city of artists and genius. you call me an artisan? nothing but a painter of colorful bulls. no, i am an artist. i see more than all of you. ah, this is my time and recording. that's why i've given odd my trough for eternity. ah,
11:24 pm
ugly damnation in fun. ah . when we see something beautiful, something fascinating. we want to hold on to it. so we can look at it again and again. today we do this digitally back then. people relied on the work of artists, body. chinese paintings played the role that films and sound recording sting. today . they brought stories from religion admit to life. oh, for an iraq which are offered the only glimpse into other worlds and other times
11:25 pm
into fantasy ah, ah, you actually buy a ferrari if you can afford as a way of showing a wealth? that's why all this buildings that we feel the bobs that were ways of celebrating the palm of the glory, the success of the families in question equivocal. i how powerful and vastly rich is a ruling dynasty that can walks through the centre of its city without encountering its people above the medicaid. she below the people possessing power, if the city and doing everything they can to show it ah, ah bossy charlie had arrived at the top. but he didn't
11:26 pm
ride there on the meadow cheese coat tails. no. as their artist, he came and went freely from their homes. ah, we are here at the cloister next to the sunshine, so judge and some 5 on the d as ago we can guess that's a great pain. gold book t chelly. i've been invited by lorenzo the pen, francesco the mandatory to call him a thing which will actually be an amazing proposal, but at the same time, something somehow, even shocking. in fact, lorenzo, the consulting scholar manager will ask it to create the illustrations of the celebrated yvonne comedy that was a quite challenging job for it. because of course, dante's divine comedy was very much alive in everybody's imagery. so he actually accepted the task. we can imagine though, a little bit the perplexity initially because it was a very, very, very competitive thing. when in the end it will accept it. and they actually
11:27 pm
finally agreed to sign a contract lorenzo detail francesco and i united in art and spirit pen contract with a single common go to bring to life the magical lines of the canadian more truthful, close intensive, and own composition than ever before. ah, we were united in our vision. i had no doubt we would achieve something remarkable . ah, the result is a visualization of dante's journey through hell. it is a huge one, taking the poet's complete text, and illustrating it much like a comic strip. but he shall, is thought to have put pen to paper in florence, around 1480 a century and
11:28 pm
a half earlier just before his death. in 1321 dante, alec yardi had completed the divine comedy in it. the poets, driven by doubts, describes his search for enlightenment. his beloved beatrice inspires him on his journey, sending him through the gates of hell with its terrifying inscription bedroom. you pass into the city of woe through me, you pass and to eternal aim through me. the way among the people last justice incited my sublime creator cuz i was created by the omnipotence of god to shoot through supreme wisdom. and through 1st love fell before me. there were no created things, only a turn, and i eternal last la shot, the new sped, answer, o void, enter. arthur. all hope abound those shocking thee over 200 years as though it hadn't been written. all those images were actually believed
11:29 pm
by most of the people who really thought that after that they had to go to hell. if you believe in god could be, did you think to go to paradise, to go to hell. it's not even managed to imagine it. but even in the 1400 and even later the medieval imagery is still survived. and all the people thought after that as to we can then to go through hell. they used to be also those degrees, very labels of sense. and if we were fortunate, if we have behaved quite well, you could actually take l afterwards go through bigotry. and afterwards, the paradigm that was a quite different amatory dante's revolutionary lines changed the way people sort, altered their view of the world. a 150 years later, during a dark time, the church, his vision of paradise and hell, still hangs heavy over the collective consciousness. it shapes people's paths through life as they strive to past hell and satan,
11:30 pm
without sending me to day berlin is home to the lion's share of butter. charlie's extensive collection of drawings for dante's comedian for the berlin cook fish dish cabinet, the museum of prints and drawings. the collection is both a treasure and a miracle in more than 500 years of existence. the drawings have remained largely together in a well preserved condition. yeah, he asked isn't here from this box i've just taken at one of the drawing sondra, but it's only created for the divine comedy, derek. a 5 ton of hat at the berlin co flushed dish cabinet holds 85 of these dry this moment of life at a steep another 7 from the cycle are kept at the vatican of pebbles, we assume that the cycle originally included $102.00 parchments as also by a pack
11:31 pm
a mental far so today about 10 have been loss. lighter. edward seen fessler when these drawing so significant these works are unlike a typical butter tele painting. large and colorful as are nowadays. and actually, ever since it was discovered that isn't considered to be one of the most important works of the renaissance, several, a thought. i failed to say that, but he chelly like no other dante illustrator before or after him. battle was able to visualize the words of dante d. vaught. he translated the words into images and presented them to us. as the story told, an actor this ac assisted happy thought, ah, this is not a single work of art, but rather 92 individual works. each in itself is
11:32 pm
a fascinating piece, encompassing the inimitable power and magic of the artist. the danty and journey through hell to paradise. with a breathtaking aesthetics and intensity. ah, all the drawings from rome and berlin are collected in a fax, emily, those that are scanned on dan statement. here are some white pages. i'm advice of these are the sheets that are lost or stolen, and here it's quite interesting because we have this detailed in my paddle and fair no in fan, or you can imagine more or less how potentially was thinking about representing these cantos that for which we have no sheets see 50 via kindly, blood hum duct up with the map of gel inferno. but charlie begins his cycle by illustrating the entire path into and through hell. why is can me
11:33 pm
a force then? i can imagine that the map, a del inferno was drawn 1st as a kind of presentation for his client and one's object who had been offered up keeper, that but he chelly executed this 1st on him and showed it to him better. yeah, this is how i imagine it looking, this is what the arrangement of the scenes will be in $1481.00 after only a few months. but italy interrupts his work on the divine comedy cycle. he goes to rome, where he spends more than a year, creating frescoes for the sistine chapel, a great honor in recognition of his talent, back in florence. but a chelly takes up dante scenes again. he's motivated and creative and finds a narrative style that is absolutely unique. indeed, but italy proved to be a great innovator, carving new artistic paths. ah,
11:34 pm
then that the de la for know in the apostolic library in the vatican is the conceptual study, the blueprint for the masterpiece, encompassing all 100 counties. it lays the foundation for the artists unusual approach we look at, but i would think that his son, if i don't think it's interesting to compare body charlie's drawings with what is essentially a contemporary codecs produced between 148014858 gummy report book here we have the traditional relationships between image and text, a full scenario face. the image is directly related to the text me and it depends only one moment i will swallow me though english is or selection from an important episode of the canto lee with body jelly. we have a completely different vision will be. that means that he moves, instead of depicting a single moment, he follow placement steadily and over time will cheat, glory, to ha o'connor. the moon was in the circle of hell. for example. you can see dante
11:35 pm
and virgil up at the top, or distinguished from one another by the color of their robes in release the color they enter. and then you see how they walk through all 9 circles you the image shows the whole process, imagining quality model. this is the enormous difference between body charlie psycho and the traditional manuscripts of the time. bechtel. a woman's great thought i did soon. but, but a jelly goes a step further. he needs more space for his drawings and comes up with something new. in addition to telling an ongoing story in a single sheet, but a tele also devices special arrangement of his images along with dante's text. he decides to have each of the $100.00 can toes written on the back of the parchment upside down bound. each image would then appear at the top of the page with the corresponding can say, printed below. thus, it becomes clear. this must be
11:36 pm
a book with the map of hell as cover image, assign length. the likelihood is if you have $102.00 sheets of parchment that need to be in a certain i fixed order in for that it will be bowed. escalate. anything else would actually be a logical of outward and us, as of english, english. in addition to butter jellies, drawings, the binding itself is treasure. this work of art is kept in berlin. the binding is extremely significant to understanding the history of the dante cycle. because it helps trace the path taken by but a chillies work where it travels, whose hands it passed through. international exhibitions like this one at london's hotel gallery bring, but italy's dante's cycle to light read from the covers of books. these drawings never failed to surprise them. he was the unexpected powerful way of spotted. chevy
11:37 pm
ah, the viewers are absolutely fascinated by don't bother chillies drawings. one of the things that um, i've noticed over and over again is that they, they go up to them and they look very, very closely their drawings let because they're so delicate and so incredibly detailed. but of chelly on the had a very, very deep and strong understanding of, of dante and his drawings. absolutely. barrett the south. he them, he captured the darkness and the horrors of the inferno, just as well as he did. liam, divine beauty of paradise. when most people think about a child, i think i think of goddesses, i think of angels, i think of this song rather sweet to elegant melancholy beauty. this is a totally unknown sight about a cello to most people. ah,
11:38 pm
this is the, the last canter in the inferno where dante, a virtual reached the center or the center of the earth, the bottom of hell, and they encounter lucifer himself. and he detected lucifer, very unusually on a double page. as a full figure from dog detected from head to foot. and he's done this so that he can actually show the action the central action of the um, the, the final counter which is long actually, dante and virtual are escaping from hell. and they have to do so by climbing all the way down his body. ah, they climb down his body hanging on to his on the shaggy coat. then when the reaches fling, they turn. what looks to us upside down, but they're actually turning upright and they're climbing up toward the surface of the earth in the also direction. and you actually to them heading up toward the surface here. um and of course slow the counter ends with the, the,
11:39 pm
the very famous line. so we came forth and beheld once again the stars. we have to think ourselves back into the mindset of someone to move to in century. and someone on the 15th century. i'd be willing to that would have almost upset with her mind the inferno is profoundly disturbing, but, but a jelly brings an equally imaginative and some full vision to what comes next. from the inferno he leads us on parchment through purgatory to paradise. except for a few sheets with color, these are mostly just mine drawings often executed in great detail. they are always full of passion. the challenge grows increasingly difficult for the artist. the closer he gets to paradise. all these parchments would drop by hand, and they are artistically highly complex. how long did it take him? ah,
11:40 pm
the world of drawing looks completely different to day. modern technical possibilities have transformed the way artists walk. digital tools enable new creative freedoms, making it easier for artists to respond quickly and flexibility to time pressure and new creative demands with you will, inc, on virtual natural materials, can be used to create images in the style of other epochs. ah, ideas approaches. second thoughts today change is a quick and easy to make. ah, the situation was dramatically difference in but italy's time
11:41 pm
ah most often bossy, chilly, used a metal stylus to press initial outlines and ideas into the parchment sheets. then he used a metal pen to make delicate bluish colored preliminary drawings, as he decided on his image. ah bossy shirley then finalized the drawings in ink. he used pure lines, applying great experience and skill a capacity for reflection and the ability to plan an image in his mind was enormously important because parchment was expensive, but actually couldn't just crumple it up and throw it away if he was dissatisfied. as the result, some drawings allow us to see the artist changing his mind. we have evidence that he, that he changed his mind about a composition. i'm, for example, in the,
11:42 pm
in the 1st drawing for paradise. ah, he originally drew on the figures of dante and beatrice, floating out from out of the on the earthly paradise into the 1st fear of heaven on one side of the sheet. and then at some point, he decided he actually one of them on the exact opposite of the sheet of the side of the shape. so he turns he turned the sheet a 180 degrees enter them in, in ink. so this was what we see him in the finish trying today, but you can still see of kind of ghost ghostly figures of dante and beatrice um below them. not all decisions were purely creative at various points in the cycle. it's clear that the undertaking presented, butted chaney with difficulties superintended again. we can assume that body chelly must have worked under pressure during some stages to under time pressure, politically made corrections he raised. you can also see at some point, so kind of acceleration and execution music. what's your name?
11:43 pm
but the work did not go quickly, but actually labor day for it for a very long time returning again and again for many years. a policy with you. i mean, it is in you think the dates of the drawings cover a long period from approximately the year 1480 to the of 1495. there are scholars who believe the execution of the drawings took place largely in the 14 ninety's, a young, northern, others think it took place over an even longer period smoke is extending up until bought at charlie's death. in 1510 bought the shady, niche anguish incarnation. we do, we do have over them flat thumb, while the child may have worked on some of the drawings over a long period of time, a few of them. we can see that he used some 2 or 3 different colored inks, which suggest that he did part of the drawing, went away and thought about it came back and another part of it. there are some odd days that that the war girl at a paid dinner for a long time. and we,
11:44 pm
we can think about the don't add to the v g. he paid that the for 20th or the same are paid. and then perhaps, or probably he had the more important commission and so he, he stopping ghost abrego. and so for a long time, he didn't finish his work. it'll show annoying from it's you there are 2 very interesting asked act level than the school fast his work on dante took a very long time. crystal per 2nd. this delay caused problems the body jelly. what he showed me the evolution and diversity in florentine arts, including that of the renaissance, a best catalogue in the u. fitzy gallery in florence. to day, we might think, but a charlie towered over everything the most powerful artist of his time. well, actually at his time, and that is very important, but actually was not such a special ard as he was really one important artist among
11:45 pm
a dozen others. and you can see that from the sistine chapel from the frescos in the lower part of the sistine chapel were water. charlie got one, but then others get on. diode is workshop got other section. so he wasn't even the premis and her power as he was really a one artist among or perhaps a doesn't. great. ok is office time. but italy's star began to fade his name fell into oblivion and with it, his aunt and his vision disappeared from view for hundreds of years. ah, another world, another time at the scottish lowlands. unbelievable though it may sound, it was here that after centuries of oblivion, most of butter, charlie's drawings of the divine comedy reappeared. ah, lennox love is the seat of the duke of hamilton,
11:46 pm
a lovely large castle. but the former seat of hamilton was vastly nadia. a real palace long since destroyed to day, it exists only in photographs along with its imposing size. the legendary hamilton palace was also a kind of treasure chest for art. it was the 10th duke of hamilton, who was fascinated with extraordinary works of art, who amassed this treasure. the attempts qc of hamilton was a very shy man. he was a very proud man. he was very proud of the fact that he was duke of hamilton and brandon, he was the premier peer of scotland as he wanted people to really appreciate that he was a very, very, very important individual. and he put together a power house and a treasure house which reflects the importance of himself and his family. and it is an actual fact a demonstration of his status that you quin tasif his way to leave
11:47 pm
a lasting impression on his visitors. so you came in to was very, very fine room. we'll see. and bookcases right around the walls, glaze bookcases and, and then you would have perhaps opened or he would have opened one of the glazed book cases for you. and you would have had a $150.00 titles to choose and he could have just brought out the great missile of caudle, julia domenici, or he could have brought out. they bought a cellist ration. she would have had a wealth with white glove options. stung, it was truly embarrassment to riches. the duke of hamilton kept posted kelly's drawings in miss binding. had captivated view. is that the artists vision? wow. when the codecs under his collection and was and seen by the many guests he invited to um, to view his library, it really was a revelation to people bother chilly of himself and his art had young had fallen
11:48 pm
out of favor long since. so he was really being rediscovered and indeed through the medium of these wonderful drawings here in scotland, centuries later. but italy's drawings could once again be viewed, where did they come from? how did they re surface? the reason that they, the duke is acquiring the water chelly drawings, his but he has been out of italy from 179122180. 2 acquiring manuscripts, lots and lots a manuscript. he comes back to, to britain, and he is introduced to the leading london bookseller. james edwards, who becomes his mentor and supplier, and edwards is out in paris and in april of 18 o free. and then when edward is back, he writes a letter to be returned, fuchs saying, but he's just returned from paris, where he has spied our manuscripts. i'm at molinas claudio, moline. he is the 1st person to him, but italy's drawing can be traced
11:49 pm
a handwritten note by marleni and the cover of the most important clues to the question of where they had been all those years. m f. in franklin, m. stan this states to france at the end of the 18th century and 5th and hold up a so roughly some time between the 1780 s and the early 70 ninety's austin. popular conclusion can be drawn from the papers up here and from the remains of the paper in the folder abba, but this is binding replaces an older binding i'm found, and we can't tell where the drawings were before. 5, no one for heaven optician langer, and perhaps they had been in france for some time at one perhaps not. and vanished was basically, we don't know where the drawings were from the time they levy butted shirley's possession until molina collected and listed them here in this bindings. all phyllis settled, say it. the question of who 1st recognized the astonishing artistic value of the
11:50 pm
body jelly codecs remains unknown. by the late 18th century, at least we know that but charley had largely fallen from view. but 350 years after his death, the time had come. but italy was celebrated once again in 12th duke disposes of his collection because he in short of cash. so he was embarrassed by the mid 19th century the name, but italy resonated once again at times. but after mid january, $1882.00, the time was carried a brief notice that the duke of hamilton was planning to sell his manuscript collection at auction, which probably in the fall or this manuscript collection was said to contain particularly exquisite pieces, including a volume of drawings possibly by the hand of sondra, but to italy, of the divine comedy, the director of the berlin accomplished ish cabinet. littlest lipman was immediately interested. his passionate desire was to acquire these drawings by but
11:51 pm
he chelly for the berlin cup, flushed ish cabinet. the sun and the 2 exams on the 26th of october, kitchenaid $50000.00 pounds comes in from the person government. the original auction catalogue is converted into a protocol for the handover. the duke of hamilton's astonishing collection of art treasures passed his into berlin's ownership. in late october 18, 82, the hamilton collection is packed into 18 zinc boxes and sent from the english coast to berlin in full separate ships. ah, it was a new journey into the unknown for. but at chili's, dante sancho, ah, only $85.00 drawings reached berlin. an additional 7 was separated from the main
11:52 pm
body of work. what a striking is that 3 of those a colored one is the map, adel inferno, perhaps due to their religious appeal, the 7 drawings found their way to the vatican in rome. but here of all places, they remained undiscovered for a long time. so long mute, ashamed, looked on the sea. it was not until 1897 long after the english manuscript had been transferred to berlin. laughing that the art historian yoseph struck obfuscate, was an austrian yet notice that the 7 drawings thought to be from another representation of the divine comedy. oh, we're actually part of the large collection stored in berlin. lacking much of a bad bad inclin wilmington, bitterly either when it was an exceptionally fortunate moment these, when he realized that they were by bondage. charlie's okay. and had been extracted from the kodak swing will, is that the then called the ship?
11:53 pm
probably one of the most fascinating sheets in berlin, it's coloring makes it in credit, revisit and alive. it looks magnificent and finished. but is it ever since we don't know if this street is finished, because at least one figure is uncolored korea, it's here on the upper left or the hell. mine's to gary on the ripped by that he's described by dante, as the most colorful creature found in hell more colorful than woven oriental fabrics. and yet on this colored sheet, korean is the only creature who is not colored at all in the map, a dylan fan, no butter jelly provides an indication of gary ins, appearance. but the challenge of depicting the most colorful creature in hell is a daunting one. the other figures are extremely imaginative and vivid. they scream, they fight, they talk. they appear to be moving just as dante does in
11:54 pm
words. but he chelly brings the figures to life in his drawings with the use of light shadow and color. and i had sitting up to this issue, that of course is where the difficulty rose in gary, how can go re on be made even more vivid, more colorful often by obviously our solution was found, which is why korean is uncolored a nurse and we're fund rotten to speaking scotty on which korea it's possible that john though the length of time, but it took on polluted finishing ups and in, in the sense of probably color again. but it is, it is also possible that um, it was to fiber but to the on color drawings. some were beautiful enough in themselves to justify simply am completing the cycle as on black and white wine drawings. she really does anybody think that a drawing shall great variety,
11:55 pm
connie useful, there are some that are completely filled out and collared. i'll keep others a just catches we because of that at the we can be sure that the work was not completed yet. will computer rescued from oblivion to day? people flock to see but a chelly. how does he manage to still inspire people to day with aunt that is more than 500 years old? well, it certainly part of the star system of art history that is better, much comparable with famous actors also let you have the superstars now, but to charlie is a superstar in our perception. posey teddy thrilled the masses with his unusual imagination as well as with his portrayals of beauty and femininity. ah, his feminine ideal and vision of beauty was always inspired by his muse in gwinnett of his beauty. she was considered the most beautiful woman of the time. but italy's
11:56 pm
paintings of her, in turn, were considered perfect port, trace of her beauty. he fascinated countless artists with them, including leonardo da vinci ah, knew santi, the florentine neighbourhood where but charley spent much of his life here in the church, just a few meters from via to purchase. diana lies his final resting place. ah, [000:00:00;00]
11:57 pm
ah, father shelby's work is, is everywhere, so i don't think there's much chance of him being forgotten for her of your associates. he was on between his dog and the 19th century. these 2 sal bocelli would have wanted it. people flocked to his city. they celebrate knife and love. they captured beauty. the beauty of the moment for eternity. a kind of paradise. sandra bought a chaney from the city of artists and genius. he immortalized beauty. he gave us his arms. ah . but a chillies original is returned to the temperature controlled chambers of the
11:58 pm
vatican until the day when we may be able to see it more completely and discover even more. ah ah ah ah ah ah,
11:59 pm
the issue is shaping the continents the down the news africa with where gone with what's making the headlights and what's behind with the way on the streets to give you enough reports on the insights. all the trend stuff. my talk to you in 30 minutes on d w. ah ah, this is d,
