Six works by Gustave Doré, reports Art Daily, have been acquired by the National Gallery of Canada, including the above 'Souvenir of Loch Lomond'. Says the National Gallery’s Chief Curator, Paul Lang:

“It is important for us to remember that French art of the second half of the nineteenth century is not only Impressionism, Naturalism and Symbolism, but that there were also figures who were mainly driven by their imagination. This is the ‘other French nineteenth century,’ and it is equally influential.”
