I saw this painting at the Louvre museum. Dante and Virgil are watching the lovers, Paolo and Francesca, who have just fallen into Dante’s hell. Virgil has gone pretty deep, obviously thinking about the old days. Dante, who is in red, and tries to look more serious due to his position. Attention to Dante’s face. What does he think?
