    Abstract:
    Gustavo Doré is considered one of the great universal illustrators. Throughout his life he made a very extensive work highlighting especially the work done to illustrate the Bible, the Quixote and the Divine Comedy. In 1862 he embarked on a trip through Spain accompanied by hispanist Charles Davillier. One of his objectives was to be inspired to carry out his work on Don Quixote, but as a result of the trip, several deliveries were published for the magazine Le Tour du Monde, between 1862 and 1873 and, finally, a book, entitled L'Espagne, published in 1874. But what is sur prising in this work, and has not been well studied so far, is that Doré, whose work was characterized by an overflow - wing imagination, used numerous photographs for the realization of between 15 and 20% of the engravings that llustrated the magazine and the book. Resumen: Gustavo Doré está considerado como uno de los grandes ilustradores universales. A lo largo de su vida realizó una obra muy extensa destacando especialmente los trabajos realizados para ilustrar la Biblia, el Quijote y la Divina Comedia. En 1862 emprende un viaje por España acompañado del hispanista Charles Davillier. Uno de sus objetivos fue inspirarse para la realización de su trabajo sobre el Quijote, pero como resultado del viaje se publican diversas entregas para la revista Le Tour du Monde, entre los años 1862 y 1873 y, finalmente, un libro, titulado L'Espagne, publicado en 1874. Pero lo que resulta sorprendente en esta obra, y no ha sido hasta ahora bien estudiado, es que Doré, cuyo trabajo se caracterizaba por una imaginación desbordante, empleará numerosas fotografías para la realización de entre el 15 y el 20% de los grabados que ilustraron la revista y el libro.
