One of the greatest book illustrators of all time, nineteenth-century artist Gustave Doré was particularly noted for his brilliantly imaginative scenes of fantasy and the fantastic.
Angels, among his most frequently portrayed characters, were inspired, visually stunning creations. This collection reproduces dozens of these celestial beings, all dramatically illustrated and originally drawn for such great works of literature as the Bible, Coleridge's The Rime of the Ancient Mariner,
Michaud's History of the Crusades,
Dante's Divine Comedy,
and Milton's classic, Paradise Lost.
Imaginative and richly detailed, these remarkable illustrations are ideal for use by graphic artists and craftworkers, but will also be treasured by lovers of fine art.
