Gustave Dore

Gustave Dore


Gustave Dore, his works displayed here as a live wallpaper.
Some of these images presented here are over 120 years old but still resonate with emotion even today.
Images from Dante's 'Divine Comedy' and 'Paradise Lost' along with selected drawings from 'Orlando Furioso' and 'Don Quixote'make for an unusual wallpaper. More so are some of Dore's paintings and etchings from other sources such as 'The Holy Bible' and 'London: A Pilgramage' with scenes from 19th century London which is almost gothic in its depiction. Evocative etchings from 'Rime of the Ancient Mariner' are here as well.
Truly fine art with a gothic bent that reaches into the subconscious of us all.

Settings for this wallpaper allow you to vary the time between images being displayed to suit your taste as well as options for background color and alpha levels allowing for a personalised sepia type effect. A Scale function has also been installed giving you flexibility in what is actually being displayed whilst maintaining the aspect ratio of the artwork.



Double tapping anywhere on the wallpaper displays current information about the plate and when it was produced. Tapping on the left or right of the screen allows you to scroll through the images.

You can move this wallpaper to your SD card.
