Edmund Dulac Collection, 1818, 1889-1948.


Edmund Dulac Collection, 1818, 1889-1948.

The Edmund Dulac Collection consists mainly of items documenting Dulac's roles as artist, composer, and writer, supplemented with small amounts of correspondence, family papers, and school records. Dulac's works include a few artworks, some musical compositions, and a number of articles, lectures, notes, and reviews. Among the small drawings and watercolors (the largest 4-1/4 x 6-3/4 inches) are menu cards, portraits, depictions of animals, and a theater program from 1899. The musical compositions are mainly the work he did for W.B. Yeats's radio broadcast, My Own Poetry, in 1937. There are also a few pieces for piano or voice, mostly incomplete, a large number of sketches, and jottings of musical themes, not all of them composed by Dulac. The writings include articles, a book review, lectures, and notes, covering such varied topics as art and artists, Japanese Nō theater, philosophy, religion, symbolism, the question of diffusion of culture (a favorite topic), and W.B. Yeats. Dulac's school records and a small handful of letters complete the collection.
