Daniel Urrabieta Vierge (dänyĕl´ ōōräbyā´tä vyār´hā), 1851–1904, Spanish illustrator. He went to Paris before 1870 and won recognition for his drawings of scenes of the Commune of Paris. He worked for the Monde illustré and the Vie moderne, and he illustrated works of Hugo, Zola, Poe, and Quevedo. Most famous, however, are his illustrations for Don Quixote (4 vol., 1906–7). Paralyzed on his right side at the age of 30, Vierge learned to draw with his left hand. His pen-and-ink drawings had a marked influence on the art of modern illustration.
