EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases an exquisite illustration from Charles Perrault's "Les Contes" (The Tales), published in 1879. Created by the talented Gustave Dore, a renowned French engraver of the 19th century, this piece depicts a scene from the story "Peau d'ane" (Donkeyskin). Intricately detailed, the engraving transports us to a fairytale world where we witness a grand carriage and bridal cortege. The procession is led by majestic horses adorned with ornate harnesses, followed closely by elegant camels and even an elephant. This whimsical blend of animals adds an enchanting touch to the composition. Dore's masterful technique is evident in every line and stroke, capturing both movement and emotion effortlessly. His skillful use of light and shadow creates depth within the image, enhancing its dramatic effect. As we gaze upon this remarkable artwork, we are reminded of Perrault's timeless tales that have captivated readers for centuries. From Cinderella to Little Red Riding Hood, his stories continue to inspire generations with their magical narratives. This print serves as a testament to both Perrault's literary genius and Dore's artistic prowess. It invites us into a world filled with wonderment and imagination – one that has stood the test of time.
