- Full Description
The intricate engravings of Gustav Doré earned him great success during the Victorian era, and are still respected today for their unique style and skillful vision. But they all started out as paintings, as vividly displayed here with original artworks from the recent book and exhibition, the finest ever compiled on his career and work. Displaying Doré’s immensely evocative illustrations for poems by Tennyson, Dante, Coleridge and Milton, as well as scenes from the Bible, this wall calendar is a true treat and the first of its kind.
Includes images from Paradise Lost, Rime of the Ancient Mariner, Charon and the River Acheron, Crystalline Heaven from The Divine Comedy, and The Enchanter Merlin and the Fairy Vivien, from Vivien by Tennyson. Choice work, with detail and powerful imagery. Epic, amazing visions of heavon, hell, and fantasy themes in between.
Informative text accompanies each work and the datepad features previous and next month’s views.
