Gustave Doré
Birth: Jan. 6, 1832, France
Death: Jan. 23, 1883

Artist. Born in Strausbourg, he is considered by many to be one of the greatest illustrators of all time. His first major success in Paris came in 1861, when his edition of Dante’s “Inferno” (prohibitively priced at 100 francs) became an unexpected bestseller, eventually going through over 200 editions. Doré’s best-known work is his edition of the Bible, which was first serialized in the 1860s and became his first international success. Other well-known works include editions of Milton, Rabelais, Tennyson, and Coleridge. In 1872, he published his masterpiece of social commentary, “London, a Pilgrimage.” His last work was an edition of Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Raven,” published posthumously. (bio by: Stuthehistoryguy)
