Born on December 11, 1872, Rene Bull started his artistic career as a political cartoonist and sketch artist. He later turned his talents to illustration, creating richly detailed art for “The Arabian Nights” (1912), “Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam” (1913), and other children’s titles. Remembering his lush imagery on his birthday, here are some of my favorite Rene Bull artworks.
