This short blog post was inspired by my comment on a blog post called Partisan pastorswhich featured an engraving by Gustave Doréfor an 1866 illustrated English Bible.

Doré (1882 – 1883) was a prolific engraver, artist, illustrator, and sculptor, working primarily as a wood and steel engraver. He produced over 100,000 sketches in his lifetime, and lived to be 50 years old, averaging 6 sketches per day for each day he lived. —

Comment: “I feel cleansed now that R.M. agrees with the more vitriolic commenters who accused him of journalistic malfeasance. Either that or it’s the Gustave Doré.”
