Notes:In 1873, the prolific illustrator Gustave Doré went salmon fishing in Scotland; the trip provided him with inspiration for a series of grand landscapes. This dramatic work is animated by rays of light bursting through the clouds and falling on the distant lake. A tiny figure in red on the path at bottom left provides a color accent contrasting with the dominant greens of the composition. Doré evokes a vision of the Scottish landscape as sublime and awe-inspiring.
