Wood-engraver François Pannemaker (born in Brussels, Kingdom of the Netherlands 1822 -died in Paris, France 1900) was one of the most important engravers of the work of  Gustave Doré, 19th century.

Gustave Doré (1832 – 1883) French artist, printmaker, illustrator, comics artist, caricaturist, and sculptor who worked primarily with wood engraving.

One of the plates of Doré's illustrated edition of the Bible. 

The "Pannemaker-Doms" marking in the lower right refers to Doré's assistant-engravers.  Adolphe François Pannemaker being one of the most renowed, and Albert Doms. Both were born in what later would become the Kingdom of Belgium.

This engraving illustrates the following biblical verse (Judges 11:34):

"... dancing, to meet him, being full of joy at seeing her father, for she was his only child. But when he saw her he was greatly troubled, and rent his clothes, and told her of the vow he had made. Then she answered, My father, if thou hast made a vow to the Lord, do to me as thou hast said; but let me alone two months, that I may go upon the mountains and mourn with my companions..."
