Exhibition: Gustave Doré, a traveller around Andalusia

Gustave Doré, Malaga cathedral and port, 1865. Wood engraving. University of Cantabria Graphic Art Collection. Pedro Casado Cimiano collection

The Carmen Thyssen Museum in Malaga offers a series of wood engravings, depicting romantic Andalusia as seen through the eyes of 19th century European travellers, by famous French painter Gustave Doré.

Gustave Doré loved Spain and all things Spanish, and travelled the length and breadth of the country in the company of hispanicist Jean-Charles Davillier. They followed in the footsteps of the many foreign artists who visited Spain over the course of the 19th century, which contributed to the widespread romanticisation of the country in Europe. They collected a series of images and letters in order to paint a more authentic picture of the impressions from their journey. These were published over several issues of the magazine “Le Tour du Monde” between 1862 and 1873.

The 40 wood engravings which are featured in this exhibition show the monuments, cities, landscapes and folk customs that had captured the imagination of many a traveller. These high-quality works also highlight Doré’s knack for story-telling and his extraordinary talent for drawing.
