Arthur Rackham: A Painter of Fantasies from the Golden Age of Illustration

The title for this article was inspired by the commentary on Arthur Rackham’s early career that was provided by A L Baldry in ”The Studio” (April: 1905). Although Rackham was 38 at the time of Baldry’s comment, his career as a book illustrator had included major contributions to just a handful of books. Nevertheless, as noted by Baldry, by 1905, Rackham deserved to be recognized as one of the most distinguished of the watercolor artists of the age. A year after Baldry’s comment, what may be described as the first of Rackham’s masterworks in book illustration was published – “Peter Pan in Kensington Gardens” (Hodder & Stoughton, London; 1906) and over the next three decades, his creative efforts justified the description provided by Hudson (“Arthur Rackham: His Life and Work”: Charles Scribner’s Sons, New York; 1960) as being “the leading decorative illustrator of the Edwardian period”. Subsequently, with the passing of time, Rackham has been recognized as one of the leading artists of what has termed the Golden Age of Illustration.
