Charles Marie DULAC (1865 - Paris - 1898)
intended to Impressionism, before he became a Symbolist painter and a famous printmaker in particular. His later works are the expression of a great religion, which culminated in the conversion to Catholicism.
Since 1890 the artist suffered from a slow poisoning, which he had contracted before the beginning of his career with jobs in industry.
