''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.
