The ransack of the castle (Quentin Durward).

Alexandre Desenne, from Œuvres complètes de Walter Scott (The complete works of Walter Scott) vol. 56, Paris, 1826.

Alexandre Desenne was a typical Restoration (1814-1830) illustrator. He fills the gap between Moreau le Jeune, foremost among illustrators of the previous era, and fully-fledged Romantics, such as Achille Devéria or Tony Johannot (the engraver for this illustration). He was the first illustrator of Lamartine’s Les Méditations, and besides working on series of complete works, of which publishers of the time were still fond (Molière, Racine…), he illustrated Etienne de Jouy’s L’Hermite de la Chaussée d’Antin and its sequels, which is considered as his masterpiece. For the Complete Works of Walter Scott he was said to have tried to imitate the “English manner.”
