Gustave Doré

French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor, 1832 – 1883. The cacophony of detail in his engravings evokes the nightmarish on a back drop of black ink and white paper. As a result he was a popular choice for illustrating books of prose and fantasy in the 19th century, including publications of Dante’s Divine Comedy and Milton’s Paradise Lost.
