''Europa and the Bull''
Illustration by Edmund Dulac
This wonderful example of the matured art of Dulac is typical of the high Art Nouveau aesthete that characterized those
pieces prepared in the latter part of his career.
Depicting a character from the myths and legends of Ancient Greece (or perhaps that should be two characters - both
Europa and the Bull that took her to her doom), Dulac has masterfully interpreted the classic tale in a manner that is similar
to the technique he applied for those illustrations published in Gods and Mortals in Love (1935). Indeed, one may well
imagine that the illustration would have been well suited to have accompanied the tale of Zeus and Europa that otherwise
remained without an illustration for that publication.

When presented on Greeting Cards, this image is prepared as a tipped-on plate - in hommage to the hand-crafted
approach typical of prestige illustrated publications produced in the early decades of the 20th Century. Each card is
hand-finished, with the image presented on Ivory card stock with an accompanying envelope. On the rear of each
card we also present some information about Edmund Dulac and this wonderful illustration. We have left the interior
of the cards blank so that you may write your own personal message.
