Gustave Doré, The Fall of Satan (from John Milton's Paradise Lost)

Though Gustave Doré was best known in his own time as a painter, his early work as a caricaturist led to commissions for illustrating a number of classic books, including works by the English poets Milton and Tennyson. Doré’s talents were especially well-adapted to the task of dramatizing the fall of Satan and the expulsion of Adam and Eve from Paradise.
