But mark the circles to the most remote,
Until thou shalt behold enthroned the Queen
To whom this realm is subject and devoted."
I lifted up mine eyes, and as at morn
The oriental part of the horizon
Surpasses that wherein the sun goes down,
Thus, as if going with mine eyes from vale
To mount, I saw a part in the remoteness
Surpass in splendour all the other front.
Paul Gustave Doré 1832 – 1883 was a French artist, engraver, illustrator and sculptor. Doré worked primarily with wood and steel engraving.
This original 9" x 13" reprint from Italy is from 1939. It's printed on quality paper and is in lovely condition. It's tanned just a tiny bit to a light ecru color (think vanilla ice cream) and it's blank on the reverse side. Virgil and Dante would be simply fabulous matted in a bright color and framed in either black or gold.
Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these fabulous black and white vintage book prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photos are to show how this might look when it's matted and framed. Your print will come to you unmatted and unframed.)
