Gustave Dore (1832-1883 ) was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Dore worked primarily with wood engraving and steel engraving. In 1863, Dore 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. Dore also illustrated an oversized edition of Edgar Allan Poe's "The Raven".   more from wikipedia »
