Doré (1863), Holiday (1876), Doré (1866)

Doré (1863), Holiday (1876), Doré (1866)
=== Henry Holiday's Allusions ===
The comparison shows illustrations [right side] by Gustave Doré (to John Milton's Paradise Lost, Book VI, 1866), [left side] Plate I of Gustave Doré's illustrations to chapter 1 in Miguel de Cervantes' Don Quixote (1863 edition) and [center] by Henry Holiday (to The Hunting of the Snark, 1876).
Probably also this applies: Doré (1863) -> Doré (1866). Why shouldn't a prolific artist re-use his own work?

They also are allusions to the illustrations by Marcus Gheeraerts the Younger and to other artists. Henry Holiday built them into this illustration (center image,1876) to Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark. His pictorial allusions parallel run parallel to Carroll's textual allusions.

This also is an special finding, as it shows that Doré used the composition of an 1863 illustration (left image) for an 1866 illustration (right image). As he produced lots of illustrations, "copying" from his own work probably almost was a necessity. Artists know how artists work, therefore Henry Holiday may have understood Doré's "self allusion" already many years before I run into this as an outsider. Artists perhaps don't talk about how their colleagues work. But I am not an artist :-)
