Arthur Rackham
Pandora's Box Of Bats

Illustration for Shakespeare's "A Midsummer Night's Dream" more illustrations from this book are on display in this gallery.

Beauty and the Beast

The dragon Fafner guarding the gold hoard, illustration from Richard Wagner's Siegfried.

A selection of artworks, links and details on the life of Rackham can be viewed at Wikipedia.

An excellent article on the artist can be found at Lines and Colors.

I thought I'd mentioned Rackham here years ago but apparently not. There are many more of his illustrations I'll be posting here in the future when I find copies that aren't watermarked by websites.
