Gustave Doré biography

This work is linked to Genesis 9:25

After drinking too much wine Noah had disrobed himself drunkenly in his tent. His son Cham, father of Canaan, happened to find him in his drunken state and told his brothers – apparently an evil deed, because when Noah recovered he cursed Cham and his descendants.
