1832, Jan 61883, Jan 23
a French artist, printmaker, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood engraving. In 1853, Doré was asked to illustrate the works of Lord George Gordon Byron. This commission was followed by additional work for British publishers, including a new illustrated Bible. In 1856 he produced twelve folio-size illustrations of The Legend of The Wandering Jew, which propagated long standing anti-semitic views of the time, for a short poem which Pierre-Jean de Ranger had derived from a novel of Eugène Sue of 1845.
