Dover Book

Text Box with description of Book

This is a fine collection of artwork, both Christian and non-Christian, and also mythological characters and places It presents artists from ancient to modern in numerous styles and includes about an equal number of "heaven" and "hell" pictures. They are all in gorgeous color except for the four by Gustave Doré. All works include the name of the painting or image, and the artist, but not the medium used. Several are by unknown artists.

I will try to include as representative works as I can to give you an idea of the broad range of art included in this collection. As always, you may mouse-over any image to obtain its number on the CD-ROM and in the book. Enjoy these breathtaking pictures!
