From the creation of light to the last judgement, this selection from the Bible illustrations of Doré is filled with drama and myth, from the tender to the apocalyptic in astonishing detail. An artist of 'high Romantic' imagination, Doré takes these well known Biblical themes and creates powerful stylised images in his unique blend of great detail, imaginative composition and emotion.
List of plates includes: The Creation of Light, Adam and Eve, Joseph, The plague of darkness, Moses breaking the tablets of law, Joshua, Saul and the witch of Endor, Jeremiah, Daniel Interpreting the Writing on the Wall, Daniel in the Lions Den, twenty plates from the Apocrypha - and hundreds more scenes.
80 plates from the New Testament include: Jesus Healing the Sick, The Good Samaritan, The Crown of Thorns, Jesus falling beneath the cross, The Ascension, Babylon Fallen, the Last Judgement and the New Jerusalem.
