When one Dore closes, another Dore opens.

That weird moment when you discover that a poster for one of your favorite TV shows was a reference to a Gustave Dore drawing.  Its title is “The Ice Was All Around,” and Dore completed it for an 1876 edition of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.”

From page 530, in a section for Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s “The Rime of the Ancient Mariner.”  (“Are those her sails that glance in the sun …”)

I’m pretty sure I spot the artist’s name just beneath the illustration, but it’s too small to make out.
