The Enigma, 1871 by Gustave Dore Museum Quality Fine Art Print. Paper size 24 x 18 inches, Image Size: 22 x 14 inches. At the top of a hill, strewn with bodies, there stands a sphinx, a mythical monster with the body of a lion and the head of a human. In the distance, smoke rise up from a Paris set ablaze by enemy warfare. In front of a dark expanse, a winged woman seems to be asking the sphinx for answers to this human darkness. Master printmaker Gustave Doré created over a nightmarish world swarming with grotesque winged creatures, humans in agony and demonic forces. Doré is best known for his fine, black and white wood-engraved illustrations of Dante’s “Inferno,” Cervantes’ “Don Quixote,” Poe’s “The Raven”.
