Catalogue Note

In the Gustave Doré exhibition catalogue (Musée d'Art moderne, Strasburg, 1983, p. 263, n°446), Michèle Lavallée writes that Doré was quite fond of the Cruisades as a theme as they regrouped different universes that he enjoyed to represent : war, Middle-Ages, religion, horror and exotism.
