Gustave Doré’s Illustrations for Dante’s Inferno (18 images)

Dante`s poetry, scary and enchanting in the same time, inspired lots of artists such as William Blake or Salvador Dalí.

Engraver Gustave Doré was one of many who fell in love with Dante`s work, he engraved Dante’s Inferno. Unfortunately he was not able to find publisher who would agree to publish it, therefore he had to finance publishing himself, which received huge interest and became a success skyrocketing Dore’s career.
