Catalogue Note

Starting in 1877, Gustave Doré created thirty eight sculptures including L'Effroi or L'Amour Maternel of which a lager plaster is in the Musée d'art moderne et contemporain, Strasbourg. This model is strongly influenced by the marble titled Le Messie completed by Albert-Ernest Carrier Belleuse in 1867 (Saint-Vincent-de-Paul Church).
