Guinevere and Lancelot, a tale
"Galeotto fu il libro e chi lo scrisse"
an illustration about Guinevere and Lancelot
This illustration is part of an art trade I did with @FabsNocera. The theme ("galeotto fu il libro" - which you could translate with "it was fault of the book") is a reference to Dante's Inferno, V poem, in which Paolo and Francesca fall in love reading Lancelot and Guinevere's love story.
"When we read there of how the longed-for smile
Was being kissed by that heroic lover,
This man, who never shall be severed from me,

"Trembling all over, kissed me on the mouth.
That book — and its author — was a pander!
In it that day we did no further reading."
