Victorian fairy painting

'Fairy painting, particularly when produced in its Golden Age, between 1840 and 1870, is a peculiarly British contribution to the development of Romanticism. […] As modern industrial progress engulfed the English countryside, the Victorians embraced belief in fairies as a reaction to the disenchantment of the world […] Fairy painting is the visual evidence of a spectrum of mid-19th-century preoccupations: nationalism, antiquarianism, exploration, anthropology, the dismantling of religious belief and, crucially, the emergence of spiritualism.’ Jeremy Maas and others, Victorian Fairy Paintingexhib. catalogue (Royal Academy of Arts: Merrell Holberton, London, 1998)
