  Edmund Dulac [1882-1923] an eminent artist of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’ that occurred during the early twentieth century. Born in France, Dulac studied law at the University of Toulouse, but later dropped his law studies in order to pursue his career as an artist. After briefly studying art in Paris at the Académie Julian, Dulac moved to London in 1904 where he was commissioned by J.M. Dent to illustrate the collected works of the Bronte sisters. Some of Dulac’s most famously illustrated books include The Arabian Nights, The Rubáiyat of Omar Khayámm, Sinbad and the Sailor, The Sleeping Beauty and Other Fairy Tales from the Old French, The Bells and Other Poems by Edgar Allan Poe, and Stories from Hans Christian Andersen. As Dulac continued illustrating, the influence of Orientalism became more pronounced in his work, infusing his palette with brighter coloration; this style won him praise for its exquisite use of detail and hue. After the first world war Dulac found work as a set designer, as well as designing postage stamps, bookplates, and theatre graphics
