It’s a cold horrible grey day here in Toronto. Thanks Fall, we literally couldn’t wait for your arrival.
To cheer my grumpy ass up I started researching beautiful art, which I do all the time anyway, and found yet another French artist from the 1920’s; Edmund Dulac. He worked out of London but there’s something about those French artists that really gets me. Playfulness, nonchalance, class, who knows but it’s definitely a thing. Anyway, I’ve selected his most fantastic works here to fuel the escapism and comfort that we all need on a day like this.
He seems to have been influenced by Asian art, as many Art Nouveau artists were, but also by Roman and Egyptian culture. Guy was oozing with talent as his body of work is immense and incredibly varied. I’d love to get a hold of one of his picture books.
