Draftsman, painter and sculptor, Gustave Doré is arguably the most renowned illustrator of all time. Organized in collaboration with the Musée d’Orsay in Paris, this exhibition will be the first comprehensive retrospective devoted to this major artist and will include prints, drawings, paintings and sculpture. A hundred works, ranging from spectacular panoramas to intimate studies, will be brought together to illustrate Doré’s great artistic diversity. Unswayed by new trends, Doré was guided principally by his own extraordinary imagination and, intriguingly, has become a fertile source of inspiration to many 20th and 21st-century artists and filmmakers. Gustave Doré: Master of Imagination promises to be an enjoyable visual tour de force for all ages.

Organized by the National Gallery of Canada and the Musée d’Orsay.
