Walter Crane (1845-1915)


Walter Crane (1845–1915) was an English artist and book illustrator. He is considered to be the most prolific and influential children’s book creator of his generation and, along with Randolph Caldecott and Kate Greenaway, one of the strongest contributors to the child's nursery motif that the genre of English children's illustrated literature would exhibit in its developmental stages in the latter 19th century. His work featured some of the more colourful and detailed beginnings of the child-in-the-garden motifs that would characterize many nursery rhymes and children's stories for decades to come. He was part of the Arts and Crafts movement and produced an array of paintings, illustrations, children's books, ceramic tiles and other decorative arts.....more

                                                                                   horses of Neptune


                                                                                     the roll of fate


                                                                                 Europe, Asia, Africa


                                                                             the angel of peace


                                                                                the Lady of Shallot








The New Era (1895)

Oh! men and women true, once more take hands,
Join hearts and head, and clear the crooked maze;
Set Love and Justice up over these our land:
Let Truth be honored, honest work have praise.
And bring joy back to human days again:
Lift from Life's daily around in sordid cloak;
Draw Beauty near, nor common Use disdain;
Unite in one great cause the struggling folk.

Edward Robert Hughes (1851-1914)

                                                                                             Day


Hughes was a nephew of Arthur Hughes and a studio assistant to William Holman Hunt. He helped Hunt with some of his later work, including the St Paul's version of The Light of the World.
Hughes began his career among the Pre-Raphaelites, and like Edward Burne-Jones with whom he was acquainted, he inclined towards Symbolism. However, the majority of Hughes' work, carried out mainly in watercolour/gouache, displays the meticulous observation of nature and minute technique associated with the Pre-Raphaelite movement. 



                                                                                   dream idyll


                                                                                 night and her train of stars


                                                                      The  Valkyrie's Vigil


                                                                                       heart of snow


                                                                              midsummer Eve


                                                                                Diana's maidens


                                                                                                in church


                                                                           Christmas greetings


                                                                                the shrew Katerina


                                                                                 the princess out of school
