Description - Dore's Illustrations for Ariosto's "Orlando Furioso" by Gustave Dore

This collection contains 208 of Dore's finest illustrations for Ariosto's magnificent epic poem, painstakingly reproduced from a beautifully printed 19th century German edition. The illustrations range from brilliant quick sketches to highly finished and shaded studies, many of which convey an incomparable feeling of metaphysical gloom. Against this stark backdrop, a panorama of jousting knights, damsels in distress, heroic deeds, romantic interludes, and mystical events comes to life under Dore's exuberant pen style.

Buy Dore's Illustrations for Ariosto's "Orlando Furioso" by Gustave Dore from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
