Dor in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

"Hailed as "the most illustrious of illustrators" by his contemporaries, Gustave Doré's engravings are still renowned today. His drawings appeared regularly in many historic nineteenth-century newspapers, such as the Pictorial Times or The Illustrated London News, and his illustrations for Cervantes's Don Quixote, Milton's Paradise Lost, Edgar Allan Poe's The Raven, Perrault's Faily Tales, La Fontaine's Fables, Dante's Inferno, and the Holy Bible have ensured his place in our collective memory. Yet, the extent of Doré's genius remains largely unsung; he was both a prolific and protean artist, and a virtuoso in several disciplines. In his engravings, paintings, and sculptures, he alternated between historical, genre, and landscape tableaux, mastering monumental ensembles just as skilfully as modest, intimate, or farcical scenes. From oils on canvas in flamboyant tones to watercolours and wash drawings, Doré is an indisputable master of colour and material. His oeuvre also spans eras and geographical regions from Europe to the United States or Russia revealing his insatiable curiosity through a vast range of themes. Doré's multi-faceted work continues to provide a rich source of inspiration for cinema and comic arts alike, inscribing his enduring legacy in popular culture today."--P. [4] of cover.

Dor s Illustrations for Don Quixote in PDF, EPUB, Tuebl, Mobi and Kindle:

"His Don Quixote ... from its first to its last page [is] a marvel of imagination, poetry, sentiment, and sarcasm. . . . People still speak of it only as 'Dore's Don Quixote'."--"Life and Reminiscences of Gustave Dore "Dore himself had something of Quixote's chivalry and spent an arduous life drafting impossible dreams; he knew fame as well as pain, disillusionment, and failure. At age 30 he was ready for Quixote and prepared to realize his dream of illustrating the world's great books. Dore never became the painter he yearned to be, but he came very close to realizing his desired intimacy with the classics. His sympathy with Cervantes' satire was so close that, of the numerous Quixote interpretations by many outstanding artists, Dore's has become the standard. The French translation of Cervantes that Dore illustrated is forgotten; here is the memorable remnant of that work--all 120 full-page plates, plus a selection of 70 characteristic headpiece and tailpiece vignettes. As can be seen in the backgrounds, Dore was ready professionally as well as emotionally for Quixote. He had traveled through Spain preparing an earlier work, and his graphic memory was as strong and indelible as that of another great Quixote interpreter, Picasso. From Sancho's village through Spanish hills and dry plateaus, in the Pyrenees and by the sea, in rural castles and Barcelona luxury, Dore illuminated the seventeenth-century setting with a nineteenth-century acquaintance with the scene. Dore was also a careful student of Renaissance costume and architecture; his minutiae, so copious, are invariably correct. Captions written especially for this edition describe the action with reference to the original Spanish text, capturing high points of the story. But of course Dore conveys it all in a picture: the famous windmill charge, traversing the Sierra Morena, battling the Knight of the White Moon, visions of giants, dragons, flaming lakes, and damsels, the Dulcinea never found, all in full-page
