An untrained prodigy, Gustave Doré (1832–1883) became the highest paid illustrator in France at the age of 16 and a world-famous artist by the 1830s, mainly on account of his lithographs for literary works including Dante’s Divine Comedy, Tennyson’s Idylls of the King and the Fables of La Fontaine. In this volume from the Masterpieces of Art series, a concise account of Doré’s life and art accompanies around 90 reproductions of his profoundly influential work.
