Doré's Illustrations for Ariosto's Orlando Furioso
Wild and imaginative images from the greatest illustrator of the Nineteenth Century. This is an illustrated version of the epic poem by Ludovico Ariosto, 'Orlando Furioso', a saga of medieval legends featuring King Arthur and Charlemagne. Superb reproduction of woodland scenes, castles, knights, sea monsters, spectral cities, beautiful damsels, and eccentric characters of all kinds. As with all of Doré`s works, breathtaking detail and clarity of the engraved line are always a feature of each plate, along with vaulting Romantic imagination.
