Arthur Rackham

Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) was a prolific book illustrator and is best known for his fantasy art work for fairy tales and the classic childrens' books. He maintains a sense of reality by giving his creations human foibles and there is often an edge to his work. He was successful at a time when luxuriously printed gift books were widely popular. He did do some adult book illustrations and his artwork was of sufficient calibre that a painting of his was hung in Le Louvre.
