A Day in New York (2/4) – Anguish

Anguish

The sculptor capture the anguish and despair of these subjects amazingly. The story this sculpture tells is horrible. It refers to a scene in Dante’s Inferno where a man condemned to die of starvation succumbs to his hunger and eats his children and grandchildren. You can read more about the statue, which is in New York’s amazing Metropolitan Museum of Art, here. The sculpture is called Ugolino and His Sons, by Jean-Baptiste Carpeaux in 1865.
