Ask Morgana 086: Eurgene Reunier
I know nothing about Eugene Reunier except that his real name was Carl Breuer-Courth, that he was born in 1884, and that he died in 1960. Oh, and he drew bob-haired ‘flappers’.

If someone out there has any more information about this artist, please do get in touch.
