The Romantic era was characterized by a renewed interest in Britain's own folklore and legend, Druids and Celts - and fairies. With reproductions of over 150 paintings, this book surveys the vogue for fairy art that Romanticism inspired. It looks in turn at the masters of the genre - Richard Dadd, Joseph Noel Paton, John Anster Fitzgerald, John Atkinson Grimshaw, Richard Doyle and Arthur Rackham - and reveals their influences in the works of Shakespeare, pagan mythology and ancient folklore.
