The history of Jesus’ passion and death has been an inspiration to a large number of artists throughout the centuries. According to the curator Pablo Pérez d’Ors, French artist Gustave Doré stands out among them for the intense darkness he portrays, representing the scenes of one of the greatest stories ever told. The exhibition invites the public to discover and understand how Doré created totally original images drawn from the Gospel.
