Paintings by Edmund Dulac

Edmund Dulac, French Golden Age Illustrator, 1882-1953
In Europe, Golden Age artists were influenced by the Pre-Raphaelites and by such design-oriented movements as the Arts and Crafts Movement, Art Nouveau, and Les Nabis.

Edmund Dulac’s illustrations are unique and enchanting. He captures an otherworldly magic, which transports the viewer to a place of dreams inside themselves. He illustrated many of the classic fairytales, such as: Cinderella, Princess and the Pea, and The Little Mermaid. He created a book of his painting entitled, “Gods and Mortals in Love,” which is a must see for any lover of mythology and art.
