Gustave Doré


French artist, painter and sculptor who illustrated literary masterpieces. His work took him to Paris in 1847 where he produced weekly lithographic caricatures for "Le Journal Pour Rire" 1848-1851. Doré is chiefly remembered for his wood-engraved book illustrations, especially those for the works of Rabelais, Don Quixote, Inferno, and Paradise Lost. His best known sculpture is the statue of Alexandre Dumas. Doré was decorated by the Legion d'Honneur in 1861 and made an officer in 1879.

A child artist-prodigy, he was close to his mother until her death. He never married and had no children. Beginning in his 40s, he suffered from asthma and heart trouble and he died on 23 January 1883 in Paris, France from heart failure at age 51.
