Happy Birthday Gustav Dore! French born (1832) Dore was foremost a book illustrator who produced hundreds of Biblical illustrations (as well as others). His medium was primarily woodcuts, however he also sculpted stone. The Agony in the Garden is a prime example of his powerful style. Remember, this is a woodcut! This means it was carved from wood (with the blackest black being the highest point in the cut and the white, the lowest) and printed. Amazing!!
