Comus 1

Milton's (The Masque of) Comus, a 17th century story of virtue and grace, was the last book to be illustrated by Edmund Dulac, and was published a year after his death. This book obviously demonstrates the last stage of the evolution of his art style. The intent was for Dulac to create a total of ten illustrations for the book, but he died after only finishing six.

Edmund Dulac—one of the greats of the 20th century.
