Paul Gustave Doré (1832Ð1883)

Doré was an incredibly talented French artist, best known for his wood and steel engravings. As a child growing up in Strasbourg, he constantly got into trouble for his elaborate pranks, which in hindsight were a testament to his extremely creative mind. Among others, he illustrated editions of such notable works as the Holy Bible, Don Quixote, and the writings of Lord Byron.
