Henri Julien


Julien, Henri (1854-1908), cartoonist, was born at Quebec, Canada, in 1854. In 1869 he removed to Montreal, and was apprenticed an engraver with the firm of Leggo and Co. He entered the employment of G. E. Desbarats, the publisher of the Canadian Illustrated News, and he became one of the artists on the staff of this journal. Later he became a cartoonist on the staff of the Montreal Star, and a contributor of caricatures to L'Illustration, of Paris, and the Graphic, of London. Although he was a distinguished draughtsman and painter, it is chiefly on his cartoons and caricatures that his fame rests. He died at Montreal on September 18, 1908.
