My art teacher wants me to do a large illo of Cantos 24 from the Inferno,
and gave me a few artists to look up- Botacelli, Dore, etc.-
I knew I had seen Dore's work before, but I had forgotten what it looked like. So I looked him up on google, and
He has some of the most epic things I have ever seen, ESPECIALLY for way back - scenes that seem to be right out of Lord of the Rings or something,
He is just radical!
If anyone has some knowledge they can spread about him, please do so!!!
Here is a link to a web gallery.
