Paul Gustave Doré (1832-1883), usually referred to as Gustave Doré (“Door-AY”), was a French artist and sculptor who mostly worked in wood engraving and steel engraving. Perhaps his most famous illustrations were for book editions of Dante’s Inferno section of The Divine Comedy and Don Quixote.

This photograph of Doré was taken in the late 1850s by Felix Nadar.
