Edmund Dulac (1882-1953) is one of the great artists associated with the Golden Age of Illustration.
Dulac displayed an artistic interest from an early age, with his favourite medium - watercolours - being
established in his teenage years. Typically, Dulac's early illustrations for fairy tales from Scheherazadè,
Shakespeare, Andersen and Stawell. In 1913, the mellow, romantic blues that Dulac had tended towards
a brighter palette and more oriental style that characterised his interpretation of fairy tales, myths and
legend for the remainder of his life.
