One of the greatest book illustrators of his time, Edmund Dulac (1882–1953) was also one of the most prolific and impressive artists of the early twentieth century. Covering a wide range of themes and styles, his work is characterized by the strong personalities of his figures and the elaborate backgrounds and shading of his scenes. He remains, today, among the most popular of recent illustrators.
This collection of 24 lovely cards features reproductions of Dulac's fine artwork for tales by Hans Christian Andersen. Reproduced from a rare 1911 edition, they include images from: "The Snow Queen," "The Real Princess," "The Garden of Paradise," "The Nightingale," "The Mermaid," "The Wind's Tale," and "The Emperor's New Clothes."
