Study for "Hell"

c. 1888
This work helps us to understand the importance of the painted sketch in the development of a composition. The painted sketch held a primary place in all academic instruction, for it permitted the artist to give immediate expression to his ideas in all their spontaneity - a spontaneity that ws somewhat toned down in the final, more polished work.
