Hello Seldon,you might want to check out the works of the hungarian painter Mihály Zichy.He illustrated for example John Martin's "Paradise Lost".

Definitely an inspiration - my edition of the 'the Divine Comedy' has all of Doré's original cuts... incredible.

Just checked your blog again and saw the error I made a few years back.
Mihály Zichy illustrated "The Tragedy of Man" from Imre Madách, not "Paradise Lost". My fault, sorry.
