The Authors and Illustrators - Profiles

Bagram Ibatoulline 

  Bagram Ibatoulline was born in Russia, graduated from the State Academic Institute of Arts in Moscow, and has worked in the fields of fine arts, graphic arts, mural design, and textile design. He illustrated CROSSING by Philip Booth, THE NIGHTINGALE by Hans Christian Andersen as retold by Stephen Mitchell, and THE ANIMAL HEDGE by Paul Fleischman. He says, "I have always been a great admirer of Dutch and Flemish paintings, so when I was asked to illustrate HANA IN THE TIME OF THE TULIPS, I was absolutely delighted. It was my chance to dive into the story and study the period more closely -- enabling me to match the style and tone of the Dutch masters."
