The subject of this intensely Romantic work is derived from canto XXXIII of Dante's Inferno, which describes how the Pisan traitor Count Ugolino della Gherardesca, his sons, and his grand sons. The biblical story of Count Ugolino, who was imprisoned in a tower with his children and eventually forced to eat them in order to survive. Carpeaux's powerful and emotional interpretation of the tale has made "Ugolino and His Sons" one of his most famous and acclaimed works.
