Artists in the Spotlight: Gustave Dore
Portrait von Gustave Dore Founder of the comic book, most important illustrator of art history - the critics of the 21st century are full of praise for the work of the great French artist. That was not always so. Born in Strasbourg in 1832, Doré quickly made a career. His great talent was evident in childhood, when he illustrated as nine-year-old Dante Alighieris Divine Comedy. Four years later, he moved with his family to Paris and had at just fifteen years his first employment as a draftsman at the Journal pour rire. In the same year, 1847, also his first own work, a creative representation of the adventures of Hercules, was published by the then leading publisher Aubert. His international breakthrough came in 1853, when he was asked to present a reprint of the English Bible. The illustrations contributed by Doré caused quite a stir and from now on shaped the style of many young artists of his time. The success of the Bible illustration provided follow-up orders from England and brought Doré great commercial success. Despite his picture-book career, the artist repeatedly dealt with the social conflict issues of his time. In one of his most famous works, London: A Pilgrimage, Doré portrays the British capital, with a focus on working-class motifs. A monstrosity, measured by the standards of his time, for the Doré had to accept harsh criticism, especially in his homeland. However, his success as an artist and pioneer of the modern picture book has only spurred on. Doré died in Paris in 1883 as a result of a heart attack, and his pioneering illustrations continue to shape collective consciousness.
