Orville Bulman (June 6, 1904 - January 4, 1978) was an American businessman-turned-painter. He owned a gallery on Worth Avenue in Palm Beach, Florida, and he did over 2,000 paintings over the course of his career.

This important hardcover limited first edition art book is the only monograph about the Palm Beach and Grand Rapids artist and the most complete compilation of his artwork to date. It is 264 pages comprised of an extensive annotated biography along with over 365 illustrations including over 190 in color and over 170 in black and white. The book is an ample 13 ¼ high x 10 ¼ inches wide -- perfect for a gift. Molly Charland, Director of Library Services at the Society of the Four Arts has written the foreword.
One of the most successful American artists of the mid-twentieth century, Orville Bulman (1904-1978) remained humble, kind and generous despite his worldwide fame. (Almost all of his one-man exhibitions sold out before they opened to the public.)
