Thure de Thulstrup
Thure de Thulstrup (1848-1930) was born Bror Thure Thulstrup in Stockholm, Sweden, on 5 April 1848. His father, Carl Magnus Thulstrup, was a soldier and the secretary of naval defense of Sweden. He attended the Swedish National Military Academy before joining the French Foreign Legion and fighting in the 1870-71 Franco-Prussian War. Thulstrup studied drawing and topographical engineering in Paris in 1872. After emigrating first to Canada in 1873, then to Boston, Thulstrup began working for the Prang lithographic firm. On 3 June 1879 he married Lucie Bavoillot (d. 1915). Thulstrup then moved to New York, where he created illustrations for the New York Daily Graphic, Frank Leslie's Illustrated Newspaper, Century, Harper's Weekly, and Scribner's Magazine. Although he is best remembered today for his illustrations depicting military subject matter, and especially the American Civil War, Thulstrup also illustrated fictions including H. Rider Haggard's Maiwa's Revenge (1888) and Arthur Conan Doyle's The Refugees (1893). He was a member of the American Water Color Society, the Society of Illustrators, the John Ericsson Society of Swedish Engineers, and a knight of the Order of Vasa, Sweden. Thulstrup died at St. Luke's Hospital, New York, on 9 June 1930.
