Doré's Angels

0 Reviews
One of the greatest book illustrators of all time, nineteenth-century artist Gustave Dor was particularly noted for his brilliantly imaginative scenes of fantasy and the fantastic.
Angels, among his most frequently portrayed characters, were inspired, visually stunning creations. This collection reproduces dozens of these celestial beings, all dramatically illustrated and originally drawn for such great works of literature as the Bible, Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Michaud's History of the Crusades, Dante's Divine Comedy, and Milton's classic, Paradise Lost.
Imaginative and richly detailed, these remarkable illustrations are ideal for use by graphic artists and craftworkers, but will also be treasured by lovers of fine art.

About the author (2004)

French illustrator Gustave Dor (1833–83) began his prolific career at the age of 15, and his dramatic engravings have exercised an incalculable influence over latter-day artists. The remarkable scope of his work ranges from Milton, Dante, and the Bible to Rabelais, Shakespeare, and street scenes of 19th-century London.
