Gustave Dor�, 1832-1883

Dor� was born in Strasbourg and his first illustrated story was published at the age of fifteen. Dor� began work as a literary illustrator in Paris. Dor� commissions include works by Rabelais, Balzac, Milton and Dante. In 1853 Dor� was asked to illustrate the works of Lord Byron. This commission was followed by additional work for British publishers, including a new illustrated English Bible. In 1863, Dor� illustrated a French edition of Cervantes's Don Quixote, and his illustrations of the knight and his squire Sancho Panza have become so famous that they have influenced subsequent readers, artists, and stage and film directors' ideas of the physical "look" of the two characters. Dor� also illustrated an oversized edition of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven", an endeavor that earned him 30,000 francs from publisher Harper & Brothers in 1883.

Dor�'s English Bible [1866] was a great success, and in 1867 Dor� had a major exhibition of his work in London. This exhibition led to the foundation of the Dor� Gallery in New Bond Street. In 1869, Blanchard Jerrold, the son of Douglas William Jerrold, suggested that they work together to produce a comprehensive portrait of London. Jerrold had gotten the idea from The Microcosm of London produced by Rudolph Ackermann, William Pyne, and Thomas Rowlandson in 1808. Dor� signed a five-year project with the publishers Grant & Co that involved his staying in London for three months a year. He was paid the vast sum of �10,000 a year for his work.
