Gustave Dorês unforgettable images of Victorian London portray in stark contrast of the affluent world and the raw poverty of the slums

Gustave Dorês unforgettable images of Victorian London portray in stark contrast the affluent world of monumental buildings, horse racing, and scoiety balls against the teeming populace of city streets and the raw poverty of slums, homelessness, and hopelessness. To reinforce Dore’s powerful engravings, Coolidge draws skillfully upon the written observations of contemporary European visitors such as Taine, Heine, Gautier and Dostoyevsky.



John Coolidge (1913 - 1995) was a man of many parts, professor, museum director, trusteewas a scholar, who made fundamental contributions to the study of Italian Rennaissance architecture and to the social economic, and architectural history of the Untied States during his twenty years as director of the Fogg Museum at Harvard.
