Overview

Marketplace Product

An artist who worked across many media, the multi-skilled Gustave Dore remains unequalled as a supremely talented illustrator, whose detailed and imaginative engravings for major works of literature – from Cervantes’s Don Quixote to Dante’s Divine Comedy, and even the Bible – have hugely influenced the way we see many cultural and literary characters and still inspire today (David Beckham has a tattoo on his chest of Dore’s The Agony in the Garden). This sumptuous new introduction to the artist focuses on these illustrations, first introducing you to his life, work and the rich seam of illustration history that he continued and ignited, from Blake and Fuseli to today’s newspaper comics, before presenting a carefully curated thematic selection of his finest and most important engravings. From his vision of Jacob Wrestling with the Angel to Crossing the River Styx, the work of this most prodigious and much borrowed-from artist is represented in glorious full-page reproductions. AUTHOR: Dan Malan has written dozens of Dore books, articles, and reference work contributions, and owns the world’s largest private Dore collection: books, periodicals, prints and Doreana, including over 800 reference volumes. He has loaned hundreds of items to recent Dore exhibitions, and was guest speaker at the 2014 Dore exhibition at the National Gallery of Canada. He recently assisted the National Library of Russia on Dore research for a book which shows colour photos of every – very rare – Russian Dore edition prior to the 1917 Revolution. 84 colour illustrations
