Gustave Doré

Frenchman Gustave Doré’s creations have no limits: designer, editorial cartoonist, illustrator, painter, printmaker (lithographs and etchings) and sculptor, creating from the smallest sketch to monumental works, ranging from religion to satire. Globally well known for his illustrations –The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Coleridge, Paradise lost by Milton,The Bible, Hell fromThe Divine Comedy by Dante – he does not engrave himself but he cooperates with the best wood engravers of his time, particularly with Héliodore Pisan, Paul Jonnard and François Pannemaker.
