Author: Gustave Dore
Dore's 'Bible Illustrations' is a very beautiful and nostalgic trip into Victorian book illustration. I remember these images from a multi- volume 'Bible for Children' that I had as a child. I was parted from those books, but always remembered the images, and what a lasting effect they had on my spirituality, and my internal image of God. I was so happy to be able to buy the Dore 'Bible Illustrations'. I am an artist with a special interest in Victorian imagery, and will treasure this volume. I think any person interested in Victorian art, and Christian iconography will enjoy this book. The Dore Bible Illustrations are magnificent. One looks at them and marvels at their intricasy and sensitivity. Everyone who sees this book asks how to obtain a copy. It is a brilliant and bright look backwards, like a trip to Sunday school. Special care has been taken to bind the book. I highly recommend this book for every person who believes in Christ and I know this is wonderful to read and ponder before bedtime. THE DORE BIBLE ILLUSTRATIONS is the most highly praised and famous series of pencil drawings (turned into fine woodcuts by artisan engravers) crafted by the celebrated French illustrator, Paul Gustave Dor (1833-1883). These illustrations are inspired and memorable containing depictions of popular scenes and personalities as idealized conceptions, poetic and fanciful, from both the Jewish and Christian, biblical traditions. Dor 's talent is mystically potent with his dramatic, chariscura renderings of moody heavens and skies; panoramic vistas and landscapes; and grand buildings and interiors, all to frame the engaging, spiritual dramas of salvation history. A moving, gallery stroll for young and old alike.
Book Size: 8 1/2" x 11". 112 pages. From thePreface. THE pleasure and profit of studying Sacred Scripture are greatly enhanced by the aid of pictorial illustration. Even the rudest sketch may throw light upon the divine record, and assist the mind to the understanding of the lessons which the words How much more is this true when the highest degree of artistic talent is brought to the service of the explanation of the Word of God. Of all the artists who have lent their skill to the illustration of the Bible, the gifted Dor� stands pre-eminent. With graphic touch he illuminates the sacred page, and in speaking lines brings out a wealth of meaning which might otherwise remain obscure. The present volume groups some of the leading incidents of Bible history, from its opening in Eden, to its close in the ascent of the Redeemer from Olivet. It may serve as a welcome message for home reading, and for the pleasant instruction of the family in the truths which are valued by all who love the Bible. CONTENTS. The Creation Of Light.
