Fairy Art by Iain Zaczek

Book Description

The Victorian era saw a flowering of fairy paintings as British artists in particular rejected the classical and ancient Greek subjects in favour of a deeper, closer source of inspiration in the countryside, the hedgerows and the meadows of the nineteenth-century British landscape. This book celebrates the fine art of Fairy painting.
