Auguste Donnay was the son of the sculptor Lambert Donnay and the grandson of a decorative artisan and sculptor. His mother died in childbirth. At a very young age he attended evening classes at the Académie des Beaux-Arts in Liège and taught himself watercolour painting. He began his career as a decorative painter of flowers, ceiling decorations and ballrooms, and also painted portraits of his friends. At the age of 25 he was awarded a travel bursary, which allowed him to spend five months in Paris, where he got to know the Nabis. However, he was particularly attracted to Egyptian statuary, Japanese art and the Italian primitives, before he discovered the work of Puvis de Chavannes. In 1894 he participated in the first Salon de la Libre Esthétique, and in 1896 he took part in the Salon de l'Art Indépendant in Paris.

These surroundings made a lasting impression on the young Doré, as did the splendid Renaissance spiral staircase in his parents' home in the Rue des Écrivains (as Hans Haug notes in his preface to the catalogue of the Doré retrospective held in Strasbourg in 1854). Strasbourg and Alsace were fated to figure prominently (albeit in duly transliterated form) in the work of the gifted and precocious Doré, notably in his illustrations for Balzac's ...
