The Doré-Britton Gallery: The Biblical Story in 219 Color Images


    This is the Story of the Bible, in pictures both new and old. These images started out as sketches by Gustave Doré (1832-1883) whiich were then engraved into end-grain wood (boxwood was a popular choice) and finally inked and stamped into various books and publications. We made high resolution scans of Doré’s woodcuts. Our artist, Will Britton, digitally painted them, bringing Doré’s stunning black and white images into vibrant color. We have organized these pictures in (mostly) chronological order. You can hop from one to the next like rocks in a riverbed, from the headwaters of the Story all the way down the river to its end — which is a new beginning. You’ll see the biblical Story as you’ve never seen it before, in all its beauty, brutality, and finally, grace.
