Critical and biographical notes and verses from the King James Version of the Bible accompany the nineteenth-century artist's illustrations of Old and New Testament scenes
Nowhere but in the Bible were dramatic textual material and the artistry of Gustave Dore more perfectly matched. The Book of Books seemed to unleash a new power of creation in Dore not apparent in his previous work. In the Creation scenes, the horrifying visions of the Flood, the battle sequences with their monumental crowds, the plates depicting the life of Jesus -- many of which have now become the standard iconography -- and finally the vision of the New Jerusalem, Dore reached the fullest expressions of his extraordinary talent.
This book collects all 241 plates -- long out of print -- that Dore executed for the Bible. In these plates, reproduced from outstanding early editions, the artist not only captures the dramatic intensity of the Scriptures, but sustains it longer than any other single artist was able to do. In addition, Dore reimagined all the scenes, so that what he produced was not a mere reworking of what centuries of other artists had already done, but a new and fresh visual interpretation of the Bible.
Each plate is accompanied by the verses from the Authorized (King James) Version of the Bible that the scene depicts, and an Introduction by Millicent Rose covers Dore's life and art in general. This is a sumptuous book that everyone, from those interested in Scripture to lovers of great art, will be proud to possess.
