Sinopse"...an easy-reading, witty romp... artists´ works are comprehensively illustrated and expansively described... accurate and well-researched..." Art Review. A revised edition of a very popular title with new colour images, illustrating a fascinating world of fantasy, magic and the supernatural. Includes the work of Richard Dadd, Richard Doyle, Atkinson Grimshaw and John Simmons, and has strong literary overtones from Shakespeare, the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen. Written by England´s leading expert on Victorian art. "In an utilitarian age, of all other times, it is a matter of grave importance that fairy tales should be respected." Charles Dickens. The golden age of fairy painting lasted between 1840-1870 when fairies found expression in most of the Victorian arts - paintings, illustration, literature, theatre, ballet and music. The Victorians wanted desperately to believe in fairies because they represented a way to escape the intolerable reality of living in an unromantic, materialistic and scientific age. Fairy painting had a strong literary background. The books of the Brothers Grimm and Hans Christian Andersen perfected the Victorian consciousness. Shakespeare was an even more important source in particular with "The Tempest and A Midsummer Night´s Dream". Another influence was the Victorian obsession with the supernatural, spiritualism and the unseen world.
