Overview

Fairy Art explores the magical world of nineteenth- and twentieth-century fairy painting. Delving into the lives and times of many of the era's most talented artists, this beautifully illustrated reference book gives the reader a wealth of insight into this extraordinary genre. Such art offered both artist and audience a glimpse into the realms of myth, fantasy and wonder, and provided an escape from the harsh realities of the Victorian age.

The journey begins with the masters of the art, those who defined early Victorian fairy painting and those who were instrumental in bringing the genre to its dizzying heights. This is followed by a look at the countless other artists who chose to depict these weird and wonderful beings in their work, and examines their main sources of inspiration.

Artists and illustrators alike were influenced by numerous sources, from the most obvious such as the works of Shakespeare to pagan mythology, ancient folk traditions and natural history elements. Fairy Art takes the reader on a journey through them all and captures the essence of this unique legacy of art, one that remains as popular today as it ever was.
