Description: Charles Livingston Bull (American 1874-1932) FOLK ART CARVED WOOD TIGER.SIGNED AND DATED C.L.BULL HEIGHT 34" Charles Livingston Bull was "the premier wildlife artist of his time in America, perhaps the best of his kind in the world." (Society of Illustrators) Bull was an ardent preservationist and advocated for that and strong biological protections. Many of his images were done to create public support for endangered species. He was also a book and magazine illustrator and he did the art for Jack London's first edition of 'Call of the Wild." He was a founding member of the Rochester Arts and Crafts Society, one of the first groups in America to focus on this movement. Bull's animal imagery was legendary and, given the nature of Jack London's "The Call of the Wild", it is easy to see how Bull was the obvious choice to illustrate that classic.
