Gustave Doré

French, 1832-1883
SOLD
Miladys at Hyde-Park, circa 1870-1875
**ADDITIONAL PAINTINGS BY THE ARTIST CURRENTLY IN INVENTORY. PLEASE CONTACT GALLERY FOR DETAILS.**

Throughout his lifetime, Gustave Doré was internationally acclaimed as an illustrator, which often eclipsed his significance as a fine artist. It was not until after his death that critics, collectors, and connoisseurs came to realize the importance of Doré the painter and sculptor. The retrospective at the National Gallery of Canada, travelling from the Musée d’Orsay, titled Gustave Doré: Master of Imagination, explores Doré’s oeuvre from sketches to monuments and takes particular interest in his paintings.

His paintings are influenced greatly by his illustrations, they are theatrical and dramatic. He often employed intense lighting on an isolated object to create a spectacle effect. His style of painting made him wildly popular in England.
