SIGNED BY CHRISTOPHER WOOD

In this exquisite publication the 'golden age' of fairy painting is brought to life. Between 1840-1870 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.
